(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • "Cruelties Decree" is a garden he built the fifth Shogun of Edo shogunate, famous dog bannaji was Tokugawa tsunayoshi yoshisato Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu. A weeping cherry tree in spring, autumn is a renowned spot. That season is pretty crowded. Early June, I visited was beautiful blooming azalea and hydrangea. However, partly due to visit Monday was almost empty and could walk. Tokyo Metro one-day pass to show the entrance fee is ¥ 300 for adults 240 yen. (Toei one-day tickets also have discounts), I thought if you happen to go to Tokyo on 11 April and want to visit take a look at.
