You need to walk 5 minutes from Kiyosumi Shirakawa or 15 minutes from Monzen Nakacho subway station but you would not regret it. There were so many ducks in a center pond surrounded by walking path. Also you can see various kinds of stones. Near the garden, there are a birth place monument of Takizawa Bakin, a famous novelist in... More

A true hidden gem. One of my favorite gardens in Tokyo. Smaller than most gardens but truly memorable.

First, the guided tour is well organized by some professional volunteers and it's free. Second,the neighborhood itself is with a nice growing vide for quality coffee and designer shops. Finally, most people visiting the place are local or with perfect sense to respect others.you can surely enjoy a moment of peace strolling down the beautiful garden

The garden is not very large. The centrepiece falls on a huge pond of irregular shape. It is obvious that a lot of design work has gone into the layout of the garden. The overhanging trees, the peaceful water, the stone pathways create a sense of tranquility that easily affects every one in the garden. Lose yourself here for an... More

A visit to Kiyosumi Garden during the fall months is a must-do. Beautiful and serene landscape. You coukd spend half a day here and be re- charged for Tokyos other more worldly activitues. If theres only one garden you can visit on your trip make it Kiyosumi.

The gardens of Kiyosumi were originally a merchant's residence only to later be 'acquired' by a feudal lord and converted in to the gardens that stand before you. The gardens really are magnificent and tranquil if you are predisposed to such with a highlight being the incredible landscape stone walkways. Many of said walkway stones are both famous and massive... More

Kiyosumi is easily accessible by the Toei Oedo line and the Metro Hanzomon line. I visited on an October Sunday morning, my third visit over about a 10-year period. The garden is large enough to be a world unto itself, centered on a handsome lake, but distinctly smaller than the great Koishikawa Korakuen and Rikugien gardens. Kiyosumi is somewhat different...

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
