This garden is a small piece of perfection. I wandered into it on a beautifully hot day with bright blue skies - the colours were very vivid - the greens of the trees and pool, and the orange and golds of the many koi. Soft breezes tinkled the glass wind chimes, and cool water rushed over smooth stones. I enjoyed... More

My non-profit had a large meeting followed by a reception. Excellent views, excellent facilities, excellent food and service. The garden was an oasis that I wish I had time to explore.

Beautiful old garden very popular for wedding receptions and corporate events. In the beginning of March it was still too early for the cherries to blossom but Plum blossom was in full swing and beautiful as well.

One of the nicest restaurant / hotels in Tokyo. Very nice Japanese gardens especially at night. Great for business events. The event rooms have a great view overlooking their gardens and wonderful during cherry blossom season.

Garden is available quite spacious, clean and beautiful. Besides the restaurant facilities are also available (with high prices), as well as a place to relax and play. A sense of comfort felt when a short break in this place.

Experiencing a tea ceremony was one of the things we decided we needed to do and this was our first time so I have nothing to compare to. But I really loved the experience. We were guided through their garden to a secluded tea house. Our guide told us it was built over 100 years ago. The morning weather was... More

My wife and I found and took a stroll around Happo-en during a day's walk in the south of Tokyo. It was during Sakura, and the cherry blossoms were out. We got there early, before the tour buses started, or the restaurants were open. It was an incredibly beautiful, well planned and maintained little garden. We were the only ones... More

I like it, but check it online before you go because the prices are high. Great location near the Shiroganedai subway station or take 7-minute taxi from Meguro Station or Shinagawa Station.

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.
