Great place from some peace and tranquility in Tokyo. I took the boat from here to Asakusa. It's easy to get to and a different side of central Tokyo. There is a fee to pay to enter the garden and an additional fee for the river boat.

Like most parks around Tokyo, Hama Rikyu Gardens are a beautiful and welcome break from the busy city. The park is full of benches, walkways and water features to enjoy and is large enough to not feel crowded even on a busy afternoon. This park in particular we found to be a great place to sit and enjoy our fresh... More

Maybe they are not the most beautiful gardens in Tokyo but they have nice atmosphere and we definitely enjoyed the great contrast of the modern city and historical gardens. Not many visitors there either- early afternoon in October, maybe it's because of some small fee which must be paid at the entrance.

The garden is located close to the bay area near the Shiodome complex of hotels and offices. At the time I visited there were still some road construction on going, so one needs to cross a few traffic lights to get to the Otemon gate. There is another gate - Nakanogomon gate, but that's not easily accessible because of the... More

I stumbled across these gardens during a day exploring Tokyo on foot - and what a great find they are! I'd just been to the Tsukiji Fish Market and fancied a bit of peace and quiet so wandered over to the park as i saw on the map that there was a tea house in the gardens. I was nearly... More

Lovely respite from the city, this Garden can be accessed from the Shiodome Station. We were here last week and I had little expectations considering the season, but I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few of plum trees still blooming and a wonderful field of bright yellow mustard rapeseeds. In the midst of it all, there is a... More

It was the middle of January when we visited, but despite the lack of flowers, there was still a lot of greenery, and no shortage of beautiful views between the trees, the tea house, and the pond. It's a large garden for the price, and was still well worth it. There were also some interesting historical tidbits here and there,... More

This is a large area of green and an escape from the concrete of Tokyo. There is a great deal to see in this large park including a small hill, a duck hunting ground and a flower garden.In the 17th century it was the offical hunting ground for the Shogun. Entrance fee is Yen 300.

The Hama rikyu garden is very big, and in each season different areas of the park have blooming trees or other spots of interest. The story behind the garden is very interesting, as is the contrast between the peaceful garden and the bustling city seen all around it.

Stumbled across these Gardens. Very peaceful considering you are in the city. Nicer than Imperial Gardens across the road. Great place for a relaxing picnic or lunch

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.
