It's hard to believe that this quiet beautiful garden is in the heart of the city. Take your time, and enjoy the views. This was our first experience of a Japanese garden and it didn't disappoint - so many photo opportunities in spite of the rain. The tea house on the lakeside was lovely, and the trees are nicely sculptured,... More

The Hamarikyu Park is a lovely landscape garden at a somewhat remote place where you do not expect to find one. It is an oasis of silence surrounded by highrise buildings and big roads. There is a teahouse on the lake in the garden and you van enjoy some sweats and matcha, which I can recommend. The lake is a... More

It is a perfect place to have a relaxing walk, especially after fighting through the busy crowds in the Tsukiji Fish Market, which is about 500 meters away. The garden is not very large. The layout is fine but nothing very attractive. Typical of Japanese gardens, there are sculptured trees and ponds. This being the momiji season, the trees are... More

This beautiful garden is close to the Tsukiji Market. There is a flower garden, small pond with O-tsutai-bashi bridge made of Japanese cypress. You can also take the Tokyo cruise at the waterbus landing, which is located near the Ume grove. You can take the Tokyo cruise from the garden up to the Skytree Tower.

We walked here after visiting the fish markets in the morning. It was just beautiful, light rain as we arrived, clearing up later so we got the full effect of the sun on the flowers too. Modern towers loom over the park providing a unique contrast. It's really rather beautiful, however, if a path LOOKS almost too muddy to walk... More

A very scenic and ancient garden that has been the family garden from a former Shogun. Very nice bridges over small ponds and many ducks in the water. Go here and sit down and contemplate over the history.

Quite convenient to the Hamamatsucho station, the World Trade Center (& Observatory), the Zojoji Temple and the Tokyo Tower. This is a good area to stop off and visit. The gardens are well laid out and the self guide is very informative. You must take time to enjoy the tea ceremony in the teahouse over the pond!

Peaceful gardens with lots to see. My favourite thing about the gardens is that they are surrounded by skyscrapers on one side, giving an interesting contrast between nature and the modern architecture. You get a good view of Tokyo tower here, making for some nice photos. You wouldn't think the gardens were surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the... More

Beautiful gardens and scenery and in the backround skyscrapers. There is also a traditional tea house that make you travel back in time. I would recommend you to go in a good day the gardens look more beautiful when it is a sunny day.

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.
