The park's website says it is closed, starting on 07 September 2014. Apparently a few cases of Dengue fever were traced to mosquito bites that may have occurred in the park. It is being investigated, updates promised on the website (at top of this listing). This is not a review, although I did visit this wonderful park a few years... More

A great place to visit. Definitely worth your time if you're in the area, and if not you should make the journey! Was easily accessible from the hotel I was staying in and decided to visit. Some beautiful places in the park, and I was really impressed by the different areas on show (Traditional Japanese Garden, Rolling French Garden, English... More

We walked for about an hour to get here from our hotel. It was nice, gardens well maintained, reasonable facilities but we thought there would be more to see here. Liked: the greenery and view of the city Disliked: lack of things to see, would only recommend to go here if you have a lot of time

Not the best place to go in winter, but I saw photos and looked beautiful in summer. Very serene place. Loved the tea house!

Super cheap entrance fee and hugely spacious given Tokyo and the rest of Japan is tight on space. Lots of beautiful ponds and paths to walk around on. Really good break from the busy city and definitely would make a good picnic spot.

The price is cheap(200¥) area is large and it offers good places to chill and have a picnic. Traditional japanese garden-sights with good places to photo some weird trees and take a breather from the busy commotion of Shinjuku Tokyo

This is the best garden in Tokyo by far, I think. It is is the perfect place to go after a nice sushi breakfast in Tsukiji

I had a late night and was just looking to get outside and do something relaxing. I am not the kind of person who normally finds gardens at all interesting, but since this was the top rated place on Trip Advisor I thought it was worth a try. This place far exceeded my expectations. In fact, I thought it was... More

We went to the gardens to have a look and WOW! The absolute serenity in the middle of a busy city was amazing. There are so many aspects to the gardens that you could spend hours here and still not enjoy every part of it. Definitely worth the visit.
