Basically, Happoen is a wedding venue for couples to put up their wedding banquet or engagement parties. The place is crowded during the week ends where couples tend to put up their ceremonies. It is very clean and beautiful place with a huge beautiful outdoor garden featuring all the Japanese Nature flora. There are also traditional tea ceremonies available for... More

Made reservations way prior to our visit to Japan. Good thing. Was located within minutes from our hotel- Sharaton Miyako Hotel. Meandering through the beautiful gardens and lakes with the lush foliage was a serene and relaxing experience. Saw 2 weddings while looking for our small hut for the tea ceremony. Perfect setting for weddings with the cherry blossoms in... More

About a 4-5 minute walk from Sheraton Miyako hotel. This is a nice getaway in the city. We had to wait a couple of minutes because a wedding party was taking photos, but the visit was sure worth the wait. There is a lovely bonsai collection, several walking paths, and a few structures to sit and enjoy the gardens and... More

Rain or burning sun - if I am in Tokyo I visit Happo-En. Six time already. My heart was stolen by the simple tea house and the hospitality of its hosts. After experiencing matcha for years I realize now it is not the best, yet I am drawn back to it. Last time I sat down there I started crying.... More

Went there in November 2014, just when the leaves are turning yellow. The garden with different shades of colours is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth a visit, especially in Autumn.

Believe it or not, I have never been to this garden despite living in Tokyo several years. And what a mistake ! Compared to the larger ones like Shinjuku Gyoen, or Yoyogi, you can hardly feel the city. And it has all what Japan is special at: the quietness, the feel of great culture and histroy, the architecture of the... More

If you are going to Happo-en, then you probably have already heard how amazing the place is. You can expect the highest level service, because that is what you will receive.

Went there for a reception held on the grassy area outside as well as inside the banquet facilities. The facilities are perfect for weddings or large gatherings. The koi pond is also spectacular for people of all ages.

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
