The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.

We began our trip to Japan in Tokyo and were so happy we had selected to stay at Hotel Chinzanso. We were overwhelmed by the warm welcome we received by members of the staff waiting outside to greet us. The hotel is grand and has a refined elegance. The surroundings are quiet and the gardens exquisite, especially with the cherry blossoms in bloom. Our suite was lovely with the best view of the gardens below and we felt fortunate to be away from the bustle of the city. The food and service were outstanding. We enjoyed the pool and spa each day, it was a wonderful way to relax. We were very impressed with every aspect of the hotel and recommend it highly to all.

I came to this hotel because it was a work booking but stayed on for some leisure time and I’m so glad I did.

This hotel is lovely - beautiful gardens, nice leisure facilities and lovely rooms.

The Guest Services Director Andre and all the team are fabulous and simply cannot do enough to help. All the staff, without exception, are incredibly friendly and polite.

The hotel is just 10-15 mins from the Metro so easy to get out and about around Tokyo.

Highly recommend for business or holiday.

A very nice hotel in the middle of Tokyo but placed in a quiet neighborhood. Facilities and rooms have a Japanese design but still very spacious. Subway is about a 10 minute walk or you can catch the bus in front of the hotel to Ikebukuro station. Taxi is about 1,000-1,500 yen from Shinjuku. If you want a quiet hotel in a nice neighborhood this is the place. Also has a nice Japanese/French bakery down the street if you don't have breakfast in the hotel.

Why is this place listed as #1 for Tokyo "Things to Do?"
It took me a long time to find it, and it is actually inside Four Seasons' Hotel. So its not like a public park, and its not well-publicised.
I don't think its meant for tourist...

We didn't stay in the hotel; we live in Tokyo. But it's notoriously hard to get out and see the Hotaru here in the city, so a friend suggested we go to Chinzanso to see them in their garden. While I was a bit suspicious at first, it turned out to be a wonderful experience.

There is a helpful man at the gate entrance that will tell you when the fireflies are being 'active', but the times don't really matter so much, as they are still there, in the garden, for you to see.

The garden may be full, as this is one of the best places to see the fireflies, but don't let it deter you. There are multiple spots in the garden to see them.

This Japanese garden was landscaped by renovating from an old wealthy Japanese politician's house. It is now the site of a five star hotel, and the garden is open to the public for all people at admission free. Seasonal flowers and trees are planted, and each season has different scenery. Especially when the cherry blossoms bloom from the end of March to the beginning of April, we can see more wonderful scenery.

I always go here because its near our place in Tokyo. Last June I was even able to see fireflies here, and fireflies only breed in clean water so it was pretty amazing. The garden always looks like its Autumn and the place is always so beautiful. They really know how to landscape the place well, the garden is free for anyone to enter so if you are ever in the area you should check this place out. It is also near a very nice park/ Edogawa kouen.

This is truly my favourite place in the whole of Tokyo, maybe even Japan! The gardens are beautiful any time of the year- we saw it all covered in snow in January and that was beautiful, but it is gorgeous in spring and I imagine stunning in autumn too! Take your time and meander all around the garden- there are lovely little stone gods around, a large waterwheel, a fresh well/spring (that comes all the way down from deep in the mountains!) and my absolute favourite 3-tiered pagoda which I believe is from the 9th century and was moved here from Hiroshima. It's a wonderful, spiritual place to be. A fantastic garden! And the hotel has tonnes of restaurants and a great cheese shop! And the onsen is great and definitely worth doing there too. Enjoy!
