Perhaps I went there in the wrong season. I was there in early Oct, there's no flowers at all and almost all the buildings are kept for private purpose. I felt like I wasted my time, 700 yen and worst of all got a lot...More

We were there in autumn and it was still very lovely. Peaceful and lots of water features with opportunities for great photos. Easy to travel by bus to get there and brochures in English to give history and other information

The gardens are worth visiting even when Summer is virtually over and Autumn hasn’t quite started. We visited on a dull, damp October day and they were still lovely. They are beautifully tended and also include some interesting old buildings which you can enter -without...More

No need to buy tickets in advance. They take credit cards and yen. Allow a few hours to walk around the park. There is a gift shop and museum. Also a few places to get a snack or drinks if you need. Taxis are available... More

I understand that Bus #8 or #125 goes to Sankeien Gardens from Yokohama. Is this route included in the Minato-Burari One-Day Pass for JPY500?

I think the furtherst it covers is Yamate area and does not go all the way to Honmoku which is where Sankeien Garden is. The local bus fare one way is 210 yen. If you are purchasing it at the tourist information counter, better to ask first. The tourist information counter is located just next to Sakuragicho station.

How to get to these places in Yokohama (4 Replies)
Hi, Was thinking of going to Yokohama tomorrow, Sankeien Gardens, China Town and Minato Mirai 21 are on the list. Will depart from Shinjuku, but should I choose Yokohama as destination and then take the bus to the garden? Is it close enough to walk from the garden to China Town and then walk to Minato Mirai 21 ? Thanks in advance

If you are troubled by my explanation, take the JR Shonan-Shinjuku Line from JR Shinjuku Station, and change at Yokohama for the JR Negishi Line to Negishi. Walk from there to Sankei-en. After Sankei-en, walk back to JR Negishi Station and take the JR Negishi Line to Sakuragicho. Walk from there to Minato Mirai area. After Minato Mirai area, take the Minato Mirai Line to Motomachi Chukagai for the Chinatown. After the Chinatown, walk to Motomachi Chukagai or Nihon-Odori, then take the...More
