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

Previously the hunting ground of the Tokugawa shoguns this garden changed its design several times over the centuries. It was destroyed 1923 by the Kanto earthquake and during the Second World War but the reconstructed after it was assigned to the city in 1946. Today it's the only garden with a direct link to the see and salt water ponds.... More

We were not sure what to expect in the garden as it's winter in Tokyo but we were delighted to discover the garden is still green. We had a lovely time strolling the beautiful grounds and look forward to visit the garden again in spring or summer some day.

Lovely gardens with beautiful and relaxing tea rooms serving traditional Japanese green tea. Best seen from April to July as gardens were still to bloom in early February.

This beautiful garden once owned by the Tokugawa Shogunate pops out of the Tokyo urban megapolis and provides a wonderful respite, with its pond, villa, and scenic views. A stop here pairs nicely with a cruise up the river to or from Asakusa and its magnificent temple. There is a small admission fee well worth the price, currently 300 yen.

Thank warren D

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.
