Beautiful, amidst the buildings

Lovely peaceful park, surrounded by so many tall buildings. nice tea room and lakes. Note - you have to pay an entrance fee - around Y300.

We wandered around, looking at the views of the city and at the small waterways near us. Since it was not spring there were not too many plants blooming, but the leaves and the birds overheard were striking.

November is not the best time for gardens but we still enjoyed the time we spent wandering around this remnant of the Shogun's palace. It's a great break from the bustle of the city. At other times of the year I'm sure the garden would be spectacular with the lakes and established trees as well as flower beds. These is... More

Make sure you get here at 11AM for the free English tour which takes about an hour and gives you a good sense of history of the area. We learned quite a bit and were pleased. I wish we had time for tea as its seemed very relaxing on the lake, maybe next time.

We went on the Sumida river cruise which includes the entrance to these gardens. The cruise itself is not the most exciting of river cruises- the bridges are not particularly picturesque but it does give you a good picture of the area- but the gardens are delightful. An oasis of calm in the middle of a busy city. And after... More

Even early December quite a bit of the beauty of the landscaping of Japanese gardens could be appreciated in this easily accessible place by the river.

After paying a very cheap fee entry, these gardens are the perfect way to relax and chill. The grounds are of an old summer palace from the 1700's. The rich and beautiful history of the Shoguns are given to you in English and Japanese and a map of the grounds is available in English. There is a lovely tea house... More

Beautiful and calm. Clean. Absolutely worth a visit. I spent half a day here, buy some picnic and relax here in a bench on a sunny day. A oasis in the centre of town!

If I had limited time in Tokyo, I'm not sure I'd spend the time to come here unless I was in the neighborhood. There are more exciting attractions, including temple complexes, to visit. That said, it was a nice short respite and the tea house was quite nice and set on the water. If you visit be sure to take... More

A tranquil park we visited as part of the half-day bus tour. Originally a private residence in the 1600's, it is now a public park and a great place to visit and spend a while

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
