“Absolutely Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Sankeien Gardens was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been.

The grounds are spectacular. There is an enormous koi pond, quite a few old structures scattered here and there, and a breathtaking bamboo grove. You can follow a trail that leads up the large hill and you’ll end up at a gorgeous 3 story pagoda. There is also a concrete look-out on the opposite end of the trail from the pagoda that gives you a view of the tremendous amount of industry in Yokohama.

It’s difficult to think that there are chemical plants and refineries and flaming smokestacks and highways just a few moments away on the other side of that hill! You’re in the middle of a large city but it’s so very peaceful.

We took a taxi out there and it was no problem getting one back, as there is a row of taxis just outside the entrance.

Go in the mid to late afternoon for the best lighting for photography.

“Japanese garden.”

Beautiful Japanese Garden. It's a little out of the way but well worth the trip.
