Again, leave it to the Japanese to make something so beautiful and the care they put into it, is amazing. Very relaxing to take a stroll if you have the time.

We loved our visit to the Sankeien Gardens during the cherry blossom season end March. This place is a gem of YOKOHAMA, and is definitely worth the visit when you are in town. The gardens are well tended and different flowers bloom throughout the year. Just as nice as the gardens in Kyoto!

I saw this garden in every season as I lived nearby. It is lovely and you can see historic Japanese homes/buildings here. Very lovely during cherry/plum blossom seasons, but also for autumn leaves. Lots of little trails/bridges/hills/ponds for all ages to discover. My children enjoyed looking for turtles in the ponds and feeding the fish and ducks. We saw a... More

Big area and takes a while to walk around. There are some interesting old buildings within the gardens. Walked around for about 3 hours. Tranquil area away from the hustle and bustle.

I loved my trip here. We came on a very warm day in January and it was definitely worth the bus trip. It's a haven outside the city, peaceful and relaxing. A must if visiting yokohama.

This garden is amazing as most people are saying but you need a good chunk of your time to visit, which warrants it's place on google street view. There are special exhibitions year-round so you never get bored of it! The spring night view is my fav.

I was lucky enough to be here for a Japanese music concert at night, with all the buildings lit up and looking absolutely gorgeous. Amazingly beautiful for both the ears and the eyes.

The gardens include a wide range of traditional architecture: farmhouse, daimyo's villa, temple, tea house, and more. Beyond experiencing... More
