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.

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 :-).

This is a nice strollong style Japanese garden. You can buy special food at the store inside and feed Koi, turtles and dukcs at the pond. I think you are not supposed to feed the food you brougut in. I've never seen such big Koi in other places. Off course you can brong your lunch in and feed yourself too.... More

This garden is to have its origins as the residence of the Edo Period business magnate, Kinokuniya Bunzaemon. It became the location of the Edo residence of the feudal lord Kuze Yamatonokami, of Sekiyado (presently north of Chiba Prefecture), who built his mansion and a garden in 1721. After the Meiji Restoration, Iwasaki Yataro, the founder of Mitsubishi, acquired the... More

Tokyo is quite a busy place and may make you feel tired if you stay there for a while.. Kiyosumi Teien may give you some quiet and relaxing time.

I live near here so I bought an annual pass worth 600yen (4 trips will make this ticket worthwhile). I went during mid-Spring and late Summer. I gotta say the garden did not change much in between those times. The garden has a circular layout with one passageway detouring to a picnic area. Inside the circle is the big pond... More
