Garden
Stroll through Rikugien Garden, a peaceful oasis inspired by poetry in the heart of Tokyo. Signage in English explains the connection between the gardens and excerpts of poetry, as you enjoy the scenery of cherry blossoms and the park's small pond. The park really shines during the autumn months, as lights illuminate the red and orange hues of the foliage after dark. You can find amenities throughout the garden, including snack stalls and restrooms. To visit Rikugien Garden and other attractions in Tokyo, use our Tokyo vacation route planner.

  • 下地铁就是后门,不过排队太长我又走了300多米到正门。如果为赏樱则不推荐来,因为只有一棵大垂樱而已。相比其他日本庭院这里更大景致更多,有水有山还有一段原生态林子。不同于江南园林的建筑风景相互映衬,日本园林强调纯粹的自然之美。  more »
  • Expect crowded because it was the last day, we went out. Decontaminate wells gate made matrix information as silver entrance gate to & rows and columns without. Front of the main gate entrance is the weeping cherry tree of light you are looking for! The Smartphone camera cavalcade. Well-able to admire the beautiful cherry. Good to go. Also Park in the ramble cherry blossoms appreciation. Different from the daytime garden walk out. But many people. Even in the daytime more cherry blossoms can be.

  • Spring cherry blossoms are beautiful. A short walk from komagome station. And well managed by a large garden, and large trees and a pond, Koi are tasuu. Cherry blossom season will extend business till late at night. Admission is 300 yen for adults; You can rest at the teahouse

  • A little out of the beaten path for travelers to Tokyo, this gem of a garden is nonetheless a very worthwhile trip to the north of Tokyo. Built by a wealthy feudal Lord, this garden finds its inspiration in Chinese classical works. The gigantic weeping cherry blossom at the entrance is a sight to behold during cherry blossom festival and the rest of the garden is a serene visual treat. The park lights up till 9pm for cherry blossom viewing, but other times it's closed at 5pm.
  • Beautiful garden, there are so many spots from where to take awesome pictures.
  • Stunningly beautiful garden.
  • ハラハラと舞ぃ散るサクラ🌸も見所デス(^q^)✨
  • This is the neighborhood. You can enjoy the taste of Japan garden and a quiet time in the morning to go, also of exceptional quality. You can spend time around 6 righteousness in Italian restaurants, French restaurants, so we take a meal and were very helpful.
