It was a nice place to take a walk and take a few pictures. it was free to get in. Not really much to see. We were there in the summer so it was very hot and humid and very little shade. It was very clean and not crowded (maybe because of the hear).
It was in the central part of Tokyo and close to the subway.
What I found neat about it was that it was in the middle of the city.
We walked to the park from our hotel with all the people hurrying to the subways and trains.

Overall, there is nothing there to do bit walk and enjoy the garden if that is your thing then you will enjoy it. It was free to get in in July because they are renovating many of the gardens. You cannot go up in the tower to see mt Fuji either.

This is the most wonderful example of Japanese gardens and architecture. If you are a student of any discipline which requires an understanding of perspective and public space, come here. Every direction you look, you gain new understanding of the aesthetics do space, color, balance and so much more.

We visited here on our first day in Tokyo and overall impression is is of a nice garden and remains of a castle. A quiet green, very clean, area in the heart of the city.

There are several sections. Pay special attention to juxtaposition of open green areas agains groves of carefully pruned old trees. Extremely peaceful in the middle of the Tokyo megalapolis.
