If you like Japanese gardens be sure to see this one. It is a tranquil park in the middle of busy Tokyo. The ponds are lovely. Be sure to have tea at the Teahouse. This garden is well worth the effort of the visit.

visit there on a a weekend when they have the tea ceremonies. Great place for a picnic.It's a green oasis in the city, river view, flower garden , and also a stop to get on to the boat bus. I wouldn't travel here from afar though.

Visited after Tsukiji fish market as a lady we sat next to eating sushi suggested it. There was a tea festival taking place demonstrating the art of tea drinking - milk and 1 sugar for me - a Brit!!! Joking aside it was intriguing to see how it should be done. The gardens are very well kept and we had... More

Maybe it is early autumn as the flowers and the garden were not beautiful and attractive. I don't find it worth paying to enter. Smokers who sat near the entrance (smoking area) does not help and the toilet stink.

It is large garden in the bustling Tokyo downtown which is like an oasis in the city. It is home to a variety of cherry blossoms & other flowers which are particularly blooming in spring. Many Japanese have their weddings in this garden. Entrance fee is 300 yen

A beautifully layed out garden. If you like landscape scenery then check this place out. A tip is to make sure the weather is good for the day you go. It is much more pleasant in the sun than in the rain! An obvious point but it makes all the difference

This is an idyllic, peaceful garden in Tokyo on the bank of the river. It has beautiful gardens, lake and tea room and is a must place to visit to have a rest from your hectic Tokyo sightseeing. I went to the Senjoji Temple and surrounds, Tokyo Skytree and then got the river boat to here before walking to the... More

Much walking, subway riding and train riding to find this garden, but it was SO worth it. We also went on a ride from the garden by boat to a different district. Saw a few older homes remincent of years gone by.
