  • It's typical Japanese, well kept gardens with a lake and several bridges. It is a little away from the JR station, but they are very nice and they have a special to be surrounded by skyscrapers charm. In the area there are many more attractions.

  • Without a doubt the best garden I visited while in Tokyo. It was quite large and somewhat varied. They were doing some construction on a rock bridge but otherwise it was beautiful. They had a decent amount of plum blossom trees which were just starting to bloom at the end of February.
  • One of the city’s oldest and most Romantic Japanese gardens. This beautiful Japanese landscape garden in central Tokyo features a few dozen plum trees. It’s hard to believe this calm oasis is minutes away from one of Tokyo’s most bustling business areas. Water lilies in the pond blossom from May to September, followed by Autumn leaves on the Japanese Maple trees in Mid-November. In one word – Bliss. Don’t miss the tiny restaurant overlooking the Garden (at the entrance) serving Traditional Japanese meals at a very reasonable price. Koishikawa Korakuen is a short walk from Iidabashi Station.
  • Extremely serene and one of the beautiful gardens I have visited so far in tokyo. Sakura blossom makes it even prettier.
  • Beautiful, immaculately maintained garden. The landscaping is incredible and this place has such a calming effect even though it is right next to the Tokyo Done
  • Very beautiful gardens. Only a short walk from the station. We visited it diring the cherry blossom season and it was gorgeous.
