Just a beautiful space. Go early and try to enjoy the peace on offer. The tea house is incredible and the little pagoda is the perfect place to pass the time.

We always seek out Japanese Gardens when we travel. This one is the best! There were even a couple of bonsai more than 500 years old. The whole garden was simply beautiful. The Christian Chapel is worth a peek inside.

Came here as a part of a bike tour with Miracle Cycling. Garden is incredibly lush and peaceful - even more beautiful due to the cherry blossoms in full bloom. There is a stunning collection of bonsai trees, quite impressive. The pond in the center...More

Always fun to find an oasis amongst the skyscrapers of Tokyo even on a winter's afternoon. I was grateful for the guide of the garden given to me by a friendly, English speaking guard at the entrance. I loved the stone steps which took me...More

We stopped here on our Hato Bus tour. It is a small oasis of green amongst the grey buildings. It is a very pretty formal garden with a fish filled lake surrounded by colourful maples, a collection of very old Bonsai trees, temples, and a...More

Happoen is a gorgeous garden in western Tokyo. Often used for events such as weddings and parties, the facilities include several restaurants and many paths winding through Japanese gardens. Worth going to for a drink, or if you are invited to an event - go!

These gardens are just exquisite - especially in autumn; the colours were amazing. The gardens are not very big and are in the middle of the City but you would never guess that when you get inside. I would strongly recommend taking a traditional tea...More

Who would have thought there would be such exquisite gardens nestled in the heart of busy Tokyo? And no admission fee either. We visited impulsively, but I wish we'd planned in advance and made reservations for their tea ceremony. We couldn't get in one at...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
