Located close to the Tsukiji market & along the bay. An oasis from the hustle & bustle of Tokyo. Great way to spend a couple of hours especially after a yummy brunch at the market. There is a 300 year old pine tree which is impressive. Views are amazing from all around the gardens. There is also a tea house... More

We took the train to Shimbashi and then walked. It's not well marked how to get there but google maps helped. It's about 5-10 minutes walk from the station or take a cab. It's an easy 5-10 minute walk from the Tsukiji fish market. When we arrived we first saw the 300 year old pine tree. We then walked to... More

Hama Rikyu is on the site of a former place and was once a very busy place. It is now an oasis of calm near the bustle of Tokyo. It is easily accessible by metro from several stations including Shimbashi and Shiodome, and also water bus. There is a variety of trees, flowers and shrubbery, and water in the form... More

Nice way to spend an hour in the heart of Tokyo. This spot has historical significance and great views. Pretty short walk and a good way to get a sense of Japanese culture.

Built by one of the 17th century shoguns as a defending place in Tokyo bay for the emperors palace it is so well looked after that you have to spend at least an hour or two to see every bit of it. You can catch a ferry to Asakusa or Odaiba from this park.

The Hama Rikyu Garden is definitely worth visit if you are in Tokyo and would like to visit a natural tourist spot. I would highly recommend it. One can easily spend 2-3 hours here, browsing and admiring the beautiful garden with loads of flowers, trees and historical landmarks. A great place to take scenic photos :). What's good as well...

We could have lived without seeing this place. Was a little expensive for what was inside. Although the duck hunting history was interesting. And the tea house was cute. But we would have rather have spent the time somewhere else.

A beautiful park made from a past shogun villa. It was such a treat to have a traditional cup of matcha green tea and mochi in a traditional tea house over looking a beautiful pond (no wait and for a reasonable price). A lovely experience to share with someone special or by yourself. Look for the 300 year old pine... More

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.
