This was the location of a conference function we attended. It is a stunning showcase of Japanese garden tranquility, with ponds and waterfalls providing a calm environment in a hectic city. Well worth a visit.

It was a first for me to participate in a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony & in the beautiful Happoen Garden at that. It is a typical Japanese garden with trees, the cherry blossoms, the bonsai garden & the large pond with many colorful large carps. It was magical!

Its such a peaceful garden. Love the view of Sakura (cherry blossom trees). Love watching Japanese couples getting married there and taking pictures. Its a small one tho so dont expect to spend more than an hour around. They also have a tea house in the garden which is kinda cute.

Very quiet and beautiful Japanese garden. Visited 2 times but always quiet and not very busy. The garden and the pond was well looked after. It is located in a middle of Meguro area and suddenly you are in a peaceful surroundings. It is an amazing transformation. You can walk around and rest for around 2 hours. I didn't pay... More

What more can I say? This was absolutely an unforgettable time in Tokyo getting the chance to witness first hand such an amazing collection of bonsai trees. Don't know if it was a temporary exhibition or not. Very classy.

Happo-en is one of Tokyo's beautiful garden situated in Shinagawa. It's beautiful and tranquil at the same time. A great place to visit if you love gardens or would love to enjoy the breezy winds in autumn or want to escape the hustling city for a while to catch your breath.

It's not overly huge, but it is spacious enough to enable you to immerse yourself in the experience. Highly-groomed boxwood, seasonal flowers, bamboo, large moss-covered rocks, and all the elements you'd expect from a top-notch Japanese garden are there. Definitely worth a stroll, and when you're finished, try the most amazing dining at the attached Enju restaurant.

Happo En is one of the most accessible and interesting Japanese gardens in Tokyo. I like it as you can enjoy the garden by wandering it at anytime, and it is free to enter. Strollers need to be left in the entrance. Happoen is a luxury Wedding facility but is a little known that they have a reasonable lunch and... More
