Very cheap entrance fee of 150jpy and totally worth it. It was very peaceful even though it was crowded. The scenery was very beautiful. I enjoyed walking all the way around and watching families and couples taking endless photos together. I did not like that certain paths were dead ends or a repeated loop to a path you already took. That made it confusing and frustrating at times but only because I am am impatient person. I enjoyed my time here although it was brief and cold. I am sure it looks beautiful once everything is blooming!

This was originally a family garden, that was purchased by the head of Mitsubishi for entertaining guests and employees. The landscaping is breathtakingly beautiful, and serene.

It was a wonderfully calm experience in an urban setting.

The site of Kiyosumi Gardens, only a few minutes' walk from Kiyosumi-shirakawa Station on the Ooedo Line, was originally the shimoyashiki (vliia of feudal lords in Edo) of the Kuze Family feudal lord of Sekijuku in Chiba Prefecture. Yataro Iwasaki, the founder of the Mitsubishi Group acquired the site, deserted and in ruins, together with adjacent land and opened a facility in 1880 to entertain Mitsubishi guests and employees. Yataro's younger brother and successor continued the landscaping of the garden by creating a mountain as well as using landscaping stones sourced from all around the country and brought the garden to its current state. The gardens suffered severe damage from the Kanto Earthquake in 1923, including the loss of both the Japanese style and Western style buildings. The following year, the Iwasaki Family donated the less affected eastern part of the gardens to Tokyo. The gardens were reinstated and opened as a municipal park since 1932. It is a most picturesque and enjoyable walk around the lake. One attraction is Mount Fuji, beautifully created with landscaping stones depicting the flow of water.

The day I was at the gardens there were only a few people there. The gardens are wheel chair accessable. There is a large pond with turtles, carp and koi. The stepping stones near the water allows you to take close up pictures of the carp, koi and turtles. The stones also allows you to walk to the other side of the garden. I recommend that after you take your pictures you return to the path and walk all the way arround the pond and take all the detours so that you can experience the entire tranquility of the garden. Theer are nooks with benches where you can sit for break.

Easily reached by subway, this garden is well worth visiting. The centerpiece is a lovely lake, surrounded by granite and slate rocks, along with carefully manicured trees and bushes.
Also has plenty of tables and benches for enjoying the view and for picnics.

A beautiful Japanese Edo period park with ponds / lakes, bridges, fish, ducks, and lots of walkways and seats for quiet contemplation. Great for a relaxing stroll or gathering your thoughts.

Even though it isn't as old and historically filled as the Hamarikiyu garden, the Kiyosumi Teien offers some really nice views full of pine trees, Izu rocks, tea house and animals.

It is definitely worth the train ride and will give you a good opportunity to rest while in Tokyo.
