  • Cherry blossoms begin to bloom in a little early, but the volunteer guide who's in thewinter Guide. Guide it to because I am the one who was made around at your own pace. Enjoy every season.

  • A small but very tranquil and beautiful garden in the center of Tokyo. Perfect spot for sakura viewing, however during peak season it can be a little packed and the queue for tickets can be long. Visitors are mainly locals and you can find many old ladies in kimonos. Ticket is ¥300/pp.
  • This garden is incredible! I went in mid-february when the plum blossoms were blooming. It was still cold but warm enough to walk around for an hour and a half enjoying the nooks and crannies of this beautiful outdoor space. If you have difficulty walking, use a wheelchair, or stroller it will be difficult to access all areas. However, you can still enjoy the central garden with the pond. If you are looking for a break from the busy city, definitely check out this place!
  • 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
  • This is a beautiful, traditional Japanese garden. It is an especially nice choice at the end of February/beginning of March for the plum blossoms! There is an amusement park next door, which is a bit imposing both visually and noise-wise. The occasional music/rollercoaster screams do float into the garden, but it's not too disruptive. Entrance fee is 300 yen for adults.
  • Beautiful place. Simply take your time and walk around. Specially inviting on late March through mid April when sakura blossoms are in full
