We absolutely loved this place. We participated in a tea ceremony and also saw a 520 year old bonsai tree. The koi pond and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. Definitely recommend going here.

We missed out on experiencing a Japanese Tea Ceremony in Kyoto (there were just too many temples and other things to see!), but luckily we were able to schedule one at Happo-en for when we were in Tokyo. The ceremony itself was about 30 mins, and, at least for us, was private and held in a beautiful, rustic little structure... More

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.
