Once an Edo merchant's mansion, then a domain of a lord, then brought to it's current beauty by Iwasaki, the founder of Mitsubishi. It has been a well loved public park since 1932. The fee is 150 yen. I took the Hanzomon line there. It is a short walk from kiyosumishirakawa station. The entrance is not on the main street.... More

Made a trip over to here after seeing it pop up on good things to do nearby, park wise, on my TripAdvisor app. Was not let down - it was fabulous! Absolutely perfect and what I was hoping for in a picturesque Japanese traditional style park. Just the right size too allowing you to get around it all in an... More

It is not breathtaking but peacefully beautiful. Only a few cherry trees had already bloomed and the Ducks were enjoying a restful afternoon. We walked all around and discovered the multiple sights and perspectives. One caution: to avoid catching on pix the buildings that stand at the edge of the park you may have to squat or sit. A walk... More

One of the themes of this garden is stone and you can see a lot of ancient stones while you walk around. We visited in spring so we were able to see some turtles and koi (some kind of fish) too! There is an Iris garden there but we could not see anything yet - I guess they will bloom... More

I visited this garden on a misty Sunday in February -- it was recommended as one of the best parks in Tokyo and it did not disappoint. It is almost directly across from a metro station and is easily reached. There is a nominal entry fee, which gets you a pamphlet explaining the history of the park an its notable... More

Very good stop in the heart of the city to rest and take in nature. Was full of local watercolour artists enjoying the afternoon breeze.

If you have a week inTokyo, or less if you already kinow the sites or are a park fan, this is not to be missed. the turtles and carp and heron and amazing rocks brought from all over Japan are superb. Especially liked the rocks placed along the shore to let you have the experience of walking on them. two... More

It is not a large one compared to other famous Japanese gardens. It is easy to get to from Kiyosumishirakawa station on either Oedo Line (Pink) and Hanzomon Line (Purple). It has a usual pond with Koi, a tea house and beautifully designed trees and flowers. It is nice to visit in the late fall when leaves change colors and... More

This park had everything to give us a great, restful afternoon out. Difficult to find such a wonderful green space in Tokyo without the crowds. Don't be put off by the JPY150 each to get in ... this cost is put to maintaining the wonderful Japanese style gardens. Buy the fish bread from the kiosk (or take your own -... More

From all the Japanese gardens I visited, I liked this one the most. Besides its beauty, it was fun buying special dry bread (150 yen) and feeding seagulls, ducks and fish with it. Watch seagulls catching pieces of bread in the mid air and fish fighting for bread crumbs! Make sure to take pictures :-).
