The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

My travelling companion and I enjoyd our time in these gardens and particularly found the information about the reconstuctured duck hunting blinds and the remains of an old moat very interesting. The beauty of the plum blossoms added to our enjoyment.

Such a beautiful park! As with many parks/gardens you have to pay a small fee but it is worthy. The park is surrounded by tall buildings. We enjoyed the trees and the calmness of the place. We managed to get on the last boat out to Sky Tree. That is also definitely worth it as you can sail up the Sumida River. If you go in Spring you will see the river banks full of cherry blossoms.

This beautiful garden is surrounded by skyscrapers and is the juxtaposition which epitomises Japan . From the tranquil to the very busy, from the very old to the very modern. Well kept gardens with a tea house and a 300 year old pint tree. Very gentle and relaxing area.

I came here by myself to walk around and to take in the sights. It's a nice garden with a long history. Good for photographers to take pictures of the scenery. I took my wife and in-laws here on a later trip.

Magnificent gardens to spend some time. Winter did translate into darker colours and fewer flowers. But overall beautiful garden.
Everything I loved about Japan in one place. Hoping to go back soon with my kids!

The garden is well maintained and very japanese in style. Everything is quite immaculate. Hama Rikyu Gardens are also famous for plum blossoms which are blooming when we visited in late February. Part of the gardens are under renovation and closed. Worth a visit and walking distance from Tsukiji outer market.

One of the very best garden I've ever seen.
The real japanese atmosphere in there. You can't be bored inside, You will always find a day to dedicate to it.

A large but overall average garden/park near Shiodome station. Traditional Japanese gardens are usually very impressive, but this one is not this case. I don’t think it is worth a visit, or at least not during the winter months.

We went to Marikyu Gardens to see the 300 years old pine. It´s nice to see but don´t go out of your way to see it.

Not as good as the best of the Japanese gardens, but if you are in the area it is certainly worth spending at least an hour, maybe more, and it's a good introduction to the Japanese gardening style. It's an interesting setting, as it is in a area that experiences tides, with some of the park being in a near-natural wetland state, but it is immediately adjacent to a heavily built-up area. The contrast between the nearby skyscrapers and the traditional Japanese parkland is striking.

I was there when the peonies were in bloom, which added a bit of colour. Also while I was there, some workers were up on ladders, pruning trees to force them into their desired shape. Interesting.
