I took the train on the Negishi Line to Yamate station & walked south east (least a 45 min. walk) from there to the rear entrance of Sankeien Gardens. You can take a cab from the station as well. Upon entering the garden, there is a fee to enter. Around $4 - $6. Fyi, the main entrance is at the... More

Just returned from Tokyo and had the pleasure to visit Sankeien Gardens. We were just about 2 weeks away from momiji (fall colors) and any time between now and mid December should be amazing. It takes easily 4 to 5 hours and if you like to take pictures and the colors are changing leave more time. Take a cab from... More

Spring and autumn are best season to visit, any season you can relax with green garden. You can enjoy walking and drinking Japanese traditional tea. You have to go their by bus from Yokohama, but it is easy to find the way.

After reading some good reviews we were a little disappointed as the gardens seemed to lack attention /maintenance and were overgrown in places. We visited in Autumn so there was little in bloom and this may be the reason. Travelled there by public bus which was no real problem after finding which bus to take and where to get off.

A must see in Yokohama for nature aficionados! The garden is as relaxing as can be with many structures detailing some of Japan's finest architects. The area can be reached by bus or taxi and an English brochure is available. The garden presents also a variety of specimens to tickle your "nature" side. Don't rush through the exhibits, take time... More

Take a walk through this Beautiful Traditional Japanese Garden. You will surely have a peace of mind together. In September they have fireflys night where you can just relax yourself. There is a Chaya where you can have Dango (rice cakes). You can enjoy during the day and at night (only special days) to enjoy the Yabi Sabi of Japan.

沿路可以感受到日本那種街道很寧靜的感覺,三溪園中保留許多古色古香的日本傳統合掌屋以及三重塔,很幸運的我們遇到了一位園內日本爺爺為我們介紹,據說他們正在推行國際導遊,希望能有更多的外國館光客能前往多多了解三溪園的美,真的很謝謝導遊爺爺辛苦的導覽,讓走這景點的我們不像其他觀光客只是拍拍照就離開,而是深入了解每一棟建築物背後的故事,假若有機會前去的人不妨可以問問服務台看有沒有導覽。 Sankeien Garden is full of Japanese culture building,many Gassho house in there. If you want to know some kind of culture in Japan, this is very best choice for u . *Thanks the enthusiasm tourist guide in Sankeien Garden!
