For a modest entrance fee (children are free) you will be able to temporarily escape the busy streets of Tokyo and enjoy the serenity of an Edo style park. This was a good stop after visiting the fish market (its only a 10 minute walk away) and you are never too far away from the city itself as the skyscrapers... More

This garden was the pride of Tokugawa Shogunate and now we are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy this beautiful garden. By the way, it is a haven for Pokemon hunters.. Filled with pokemons too! Allocate half a day to really enjoy the garden.. I went there twice because I felt I needed to enjoy the ambience more and... More

What a lovely surprise....To come upon a delightful gem of a park, in the middle of the circus of Tokyo!..With a beautiful Tea House in the middle of the lake...With centuries-old Pines, and the reflections of the skyscrapers surrounding this park, it is a lovely respite from the 21st Century!

One will be greatly surprised when you are at the entrance of this garden. It's amazing to me that there's such a spacious garden at the center of the city. I strongly suggest people come here right after they have finished having food at Tsukuji. It's only 15 minutes by foot. My favorite season to visit the garden is in... More

Grab a parasol (they loan them) and stroll the gardens from flower areas, to a tree that existed beyond the Americas this garden is a continuous journey. At minimum 2 hours here but you could slow down and really enjoy it all day. You can catch the Ferry and there is a traditional tea room too. Worth visiting especially if... More

We went there for a morning stroll before walking over to Tsukigi for breakfast. The tea house in the middle of the pond is pretty cool and feels authentic.

Surrounded by skyscrapers on one side and Tokyo Bay on the other, this is a surprising oasis of green. When I went, in July, it was a little short of specific flowers to see (though the flower meadow section was spectacular), but this place has an interesting history. You can see the devices built in the Edo period for duck-hunting,... More

This garden is a hidden gem in the middle of crazy Tokyo. It has some beautiful sceneries. Highlight is the traditional teahouse where you can join a tea ceremony. It is a nice variation after enjoying all the urban life in Tokyo.

These are a must see garden if your in Tokyo. The layout, Lakes and trimmed trees are stunning. There are also a number of delightful tea houses to visit. Spend a hour looking round and you can then catch a ferry back to central Tokyo.

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.
