If you would like to visit a typical Japanese garden, here must be you are looking for. Kiyosumi teien is not that huge. 1 or 1.5 hour is enough to see all with your young children. You can enjoy the garden four seasons. There are many sorts of Japanese flowers and trees which will make your mind calm. My 3... More

There are many beautiful gardens in Tokyo and I think any traveler should definitely visit one of them during a stay. We only visited one so don't have any comparisons for Tokyo proper. What we learned is that the gardens in Tokyo are landscaped in comparison to Kyoto where there are dry gardens. This particular garden was very enjoyable because... More

Although you arrived in busy city Tokyo but you can go to this park for a peaceful walk. I recommended this park if you like to view natural scene. I also tried a Teppanyaki outside the park area that the food is very tasty and the price also very good.

A place for rest and contemplation with a large lake and garden. Good place for a casual walk in nature in there most of urban sprawl originally built for a wealthy merchant. Enjoyed the walk and quiet but not for thrill seekers!

This garden was included in a private walking tour at our request. For a small fee, you can enjoy this Japanese garden. It is perfectly manicured. The man-made hill is representative of Mt. Fuji. The path follows the contour of the pond for a very relaxing walk with beautiful shady spots. We shared the scenery with heron, turtles, frogs and... More

This garden is perfect for all of you that enjoy a Japanese garden. Myself is real nerd when it comes to this kind of gardens and I like the landscape and the layout, but I am a bit disappointed when it comes to the finish and disciplined cutting of the lawns, the azaleas and the small details. You can also... More

I would recommend for nature lovers. Here you can enjoy every season. Wide and spacious, but not huge. Often combine visit to Kiyosumi gardens with MOT.

I had one of my best afternoons in my life. The place is quiet and beautiful. In some moments you don't feel in a big city. A prefect place to rest of noise. Kiyosumi garden gives you peace.

This was an oasis of calm away from the busy streets. You have to pay a small fee to go in (about 100-200 yen, I think) but it is well worth it if you're in the area and your jetlagged soul needs soothing!

We visited on a cold February day to find the cherry blossoms out and the garden smelling heavenly. It is a beautiful garden with lake created by three generations of the Iwasaki family, now, like all the gardens, state owned. A walk though these lovely gardens infuses a sense of peace and tranquility with water, stones, trees - just lovely... More
