Nice, relaxing place

Really nice garden, albeit quite small. Very realxing, ideal to visit if it's too hot. It's quite far from the railway station - better take a bus if it's hot.

We caught the bus from Minato Mirai station for Sankeien Gardens in April when the cherry blossom was just about at it's best. The walk from the bus stop to the entrance was very inviting with the trees in full bloom showing us the way to the gardens. It was a lovely brisk day and there were plenty of people... More

The gardens are quite large and have a variety of plants blooming throughout the year. We went in the summer, when the water lilies are in full bloom (early mornings only, while it's still cool) and took a hike up the hill to see the panoramic view (not that great, but there's a nice breeze). With all the plum trees,... More

It is a big garden in Yokohama. You can spend around 2 hours walking in the premises and admiring the architecture and the environment. A very peaceful place to go and enjoy, mainly if it is on a good day weather. A big pond with carps, another pond with lotus and some nice old examples of Japanese style constructions. You... More

The garden was clean (like any other places in Japan) and although it was cloudy when I went, I could very much feel the historic and cultural atmosphere. The only attraction for children may be the traditional housing brought from Shirakawa-go and also the view from the observatory on top of the mountain (come with sneakers if you wish to... More

Very peaceful, and relaxing. It's easy to get there by the number 8 bus from Yokohama etc. the bus drops you near the gardens and does a loop, so you can take the return back just a little further on the same road. As an added bonus, it's one of the only places in Tokyo area which isn't absolutely packed... More

One of Yokohama's best bargains at only 500yen/adult. 175000㎡ of gorgeous scenery, complete with seventeen old buildings and temples. The park has special events throughout the year, so be sure to check their website before you make plans to go.

Serene and beautiful place. A must visit in Yokohama! The total area is beautifully set up with a lakes full of fish and birds, blooming flowers all over, and a Pagoda overlooking the garden. The Bonsasi collection is amazing and so are the buildings, tea houses, and the lovely walking paths.
