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 on your trip to Tokyo, use our Tokyo trip tool.

Rikugien Garden reviews
Right next to Konagome station. Entrance fee is 300 Yen and the park is a nice stroll. Some nice Autumn foliage but not overly spectacular. Good spot for a stroll away from the hustle and bustle. more »
We went there in early autumn to see the illumination but the trees haven't quite turned colors yet. If you are coming by the Komagome Station, ignore the big signage pointing you to the garden... more »
I visited Rikugien with my mother and nephew in December. This is a very manageable, beautiful example of a Japanese garden. It is a manageable visit even for older people due to its compact size... more »
It's really a nice park, quite spacious with beautiful scenery. There is also a unique tea house and since it's surrounded by nature it becomes the perfect place to take a stroll or just spend time reading your favorite book. The only thing is that you have to pay for the entrance fee.
Despite visiting in winter, it was easily one of the most beautiful of the gardens I visited in Tokyo. A prime example of a walking garden, the route is easy to follow and get the most of the experience without having to backtrack. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo.
Lovely park with a pond and lots of walking paths. Beautiful Autumn colours in late Noveber/early December. Costs 300 yen to enter. No picnic, no booze. Just walk and enjoy the big old trees. A real treasure of nature in the middle of the city.
What a beautiful place and I say this having seen it in winter. I hope to return one day and see it in spring or autumn!
Peaceful refuge from busy Tokyo streets. Some interesting information about garden design, aesthetics and traditional Japanese gardening techniques displayed.
