Went here via the river cruise from Asakusa. Less crowded and more tranquil than Shinjuku Gyoen,,,wouldn't say either were better than one another, just they are different experiences. I'd say it's worth visiting this park to or from the cruise. There is a tea house in the middle of the park which is perhaps less intimidating than others I have... More

we arrived from one of the boat tours. I don't remember the price but it seemed reasonable at the time. the park is beautifully maintained. there are a lot of normal trees that are styled in the manner of bonsai, so it's like looking at a gigantic bonsai park. really interesting. it's not huge so easy to walk all the...

The serenity of this garden comes from the lower crowd numbers during sakura season. My family and I saw this garden from our hotel room and decided to make an early morning stroll of it. Getting there from the Shiodome hotels side can be a bit difficult trying to navigate the hotel maze and then the road construction. Once there... More

It's a nice spacious park but way less beautiful than for example Shinjuku Gyoen. Maintenance was long overdue in our opinion. They ask ¥300 to let you in which is not worth it compared to other parks like: Yoyogi (free), Shinjuku Gyoen (¥200) or even Ueno (free). If you're planning on visiting a park end of March/early April like we... More

This is a glorious garden in the middle of the city. It's well laid out, we were there in spring and saw fabulous cherry blossom, but it's clear that there are plenty of other flowering plants to keep the interest for the rest of the year. There are all the elements of a Japanese strolling garden, and there are clear... More

It is the place of recreation and relaxation for Metropolitan citizens who this historical garden is not only large, and can feel the four seasons!

The gardens itself not big, but it is a nice escape from the city, with the cherry blossom time, and nice weather, it was pleasant time spent.

Not as crowded as Shinjuku Gyoen. The 300 year pine tree is amazing. Loved the yellow flower garden, it was blooming when I visited, very pretty.

We walked there from the Tsukiji Fish Market to catch the river cruise to Asakusa. The gardens were nothing amazing. It was just a pleasant park. I wouldn't recommend a trip there just to see the gardens if your time in Tokyo is limited. There are also other nicer parks to visit if you feel the need to escape the... More

These gardens are down a back alley but are very well maintained and the scenery is very tranquil with amazing views during the cherry blossom season. Its 300 yen but well worth it. There are tea houses and a small snack place as well.

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
