lovely grounds

We spent over an hour walking the garden grounds. This area would be really beautiful when the flowers are in bloom. We stopped by the tea house for tea and a sweet.

This lovely garden features a number of features that make it distinctively Japanese. We wandered around the grounds, past the lake and the beautiful tea house in the center. The gardens extend to the river, giving you a view of passing river traffic. Lovely views, good signage regarding the plants and other features.

We arrived by boat to start our beautiful walk to the lake. The black pine trees are so beautifully pruned and add the Japanese feel you see in so many pictures. The gardens are large with little bridges, tea houses and in September lovely pink lillies everywhere. The gardens are well kept and give you a very peaceful feeling. You... More

This a very large garden with some very good examples of Japanese style gardens but most is not that interesting when compared to some others around. It is a large area of green fronting on to Tokyo Bay and the city which provides a good respite from the bustle of Tokyo.

I have never been to Central Park in NYC. It seems to me this is very similar. I have been here twice and loved it both times. The view of Tokyo and a forest and small lakes is Amazing! We also visited a newly opened Tea house. It is definitely an area of Tokyo I would recommend.

What a difference between the city and the park. Can't explain. You have to walk between the trees and the flowers and read about the history and the tips of each corner. And check the 300years pine! Impressive...

These gardens are great to walk around and enjoy. It has a tidal pond which is unique for a garden. You can visit at different times of the year to see nature as it changes each season.

We visited in Autumn so I wasn't expecting blossoming flowers. It is a nice garden but lacks wow factor. It is good to visit to escape the towering skyscrapers that are only a few hundred metres away.

First of all, let me say that you have to pay to get in. I can't remember how much it was exactly, but it was fairly reasonable. However, despite this is it worth the visit. There is also a very nice tea room in the centre, which I would definitely recommend a visit if you're going to this park.

I can't believe it took me so long to visit this place. I'd run past it many times en route to Sumidagawa, and had seen it from multiple directions: Rainbow Bridge, The Conrad Hotel, Tokyo Tower. But it took me a couple of years to actually commit to walk through the gate into this fantastic Edo era garden. It was... 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.
