  • An absolutely beautiful garden and worth the visit. Entrance fee is about 300 Yen and it allows you to go into a very very peaceful park. It was extremely well maintained and quite beautiful. I had the pleasure of going during the peak cherry blossom season and it was breathtaking. But I feel that even if I went during non cherry blossom season, I would still be very impressed with the garden.
  • One of the best Japanese gardens in Tokyo. Beautiful and well maintained. We visited during momiji season in late November. It was crowded but still we managed to get some amazing photos. I do recommend a visit if you enjoy Japanese gardens.
  • It is amazing as a megalopolis like Tokyo still manages to maintain a well functioning balance between city and nature. So many wonderful green spots dot the city and this is one of them. Ponds with bridges, a Tea House...all "a la Japonaise" delight us at every turn of the way. Loved this place. The Sakura bloom there was awesome!
  • Beautiful garden, went in winter and it was still quite lush, I rate gardens on seasonal elements and wildlife. They had birds, fish and turtles ❤
  • amazing park. Japanese free park are all really beautiful so imagine a park where you have to pay 300yen to enter. It's super beautiful :D
