We decided to revisit the Sankien Gardens plan on Tuesday morning since we missed them on Sunday. The gardens don’t open until 0900 and five of us (Pam, Sue, Judy, CL and myself) jumped in one of those great Toyota Alfard taxis right from Osanbashi...More
I went in October before cruise started in Yokohama. I was quite disappointed about most of the building are closed for only private use. The garden is well maintained but may be due to season there was no flowers at all. I trust there are...More

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

The entrance fee is 500JPY/person.
If you're going to visit Sankeien from Osanbashi International Passenger terminal (search official website osanbashicom), the nearest railway station is JR line's Kannai (15min walk) or Minatomirai line's Nihon O-dori (7min walk). There is four ways to get to Sankeien.
1. Bus from Sakuragicho station: Take JR Keihin-Tohoku line at Kannai station to Sakuragicho station (one stop), then take Yokohama city bus No.8 or No.148 in front of the station (bus stop No.2), get off at Honmoku-Sankeien-Mae bus stop then walk ca. 5min to the entrance of Sankeien. The bus trip takes ca. 25min.
2. Bus from Yokohama station: Take JR Keihin-Tohoku line at Kannai station to Yokohama station (two stops), take Yokohama city bus No.8 or No.148 at East exit (near Sogo department store) (bus stop No.2), get off at Honmoku-Sankeien-Mae bus stop then walk ca. 5min to the entrance. The bus trip takes ca. 35min.
3. Bus from Minatomirai line Motomachi Chukagai station: Take Minatomirai line at Nihon Odori station to Motomachi Chukagai station. (one stop), go to exit No.4 at Motomachi Chukagai station then take Yokohama city bus No.8 or No.148 from Yamashitacho bus stop. get off the bus at Honmoku-Sankeien-Mae bus stop then walk ca. 5min to the entrance of Sankeien. The bus trip takes ca. 15min.
These three ways use the same bus lines. No.148 bus is express, so it's 5min faster than No.8 bus.
4. Bus from Negishi station: Take JR Keihin-Tohoku line at Kannai station to Negishi station (three stops), take Yokohama city bus No.58 or No.99 or No.101 in front of the station (bus stop No.1), get off at Honmoku bus stop then walk ca. 10min to the entrance. The bus trip takes ca. 10min.
The single ticket costs 220JPY at Yokohama city bus (if you have a Japanese rechargeable contactless smart card like "Suica" "Pasmo" (similar to Sydney's Opal card), the single ticket costs 216JPY).
Minatomirai line fares:
Single ticket from Nihon O-dori to Motomachi Chukagai costs 180JPY. (with Japanese rechargeable contactless smart card it costs the same, 180JPY).
JR line fares:
Kannai-Sakuragicho 210JPY (with Japanese rechargeable contactless smart card it costs 206JPY).
Kannai-Yokohama 210JPY (with Japanese rechargeable contactless smart card it costs 206JPY)
Kannai-Negishi 160JPY (with Japanese rechargeable contactless smart card it costs 154JPY)
I've visited Sankeien twice and took a bus from Yokohama station, so I know well about No.148 or No.8 bus. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Hope you'll enjoy staying in Japan and welcome!

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.

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
