Hama Rikyu Gardens, Chuo

4.3
#4 of 386 in Parks in Tokyo
Take a break from the bustle and noise of Tokyo in Hama Rikyu Gardens, a lush public space in Chuo. Surrounding a pond, the gardens housed the residence of Shoguns between the 17th and 19th centuries. Today, the park contains a teahouse in the middle of the pond, where visitors drink green tea and nibble on mochi, a traditional rice cake. Seek out a 300-year-old black pine tree, and, if you visit in early spring, the blooming cherry trees.

  • A park in the middle of the skyscrapers, really worth seeing it paid admission you are given the chance to borrow an umbrella all wood to protect from the Sun. To see!

  • We thought to look at the cosmos is falling because of the typhoon, the blooming flowers are sparse, and lonely was great.

  • We visited the Park while in the August heat, but one can well imagine the system must only be how beautiful in spring or autumn. Tip: The water taxi is applying to Asakusa directly at the Park, it is so, to connect the two sites! Very inexpensive and relaxing ride.

  • Beautiful garden with amazing trees. There was very little shade around noon due to restricted walking paths. A nice tea House is right in the middle of a small pond which makes for a very nice, and relaxing place to stop when you need a break from the walking. There are several hills built for viewing the park and surrounding city that make great places for photographs. Small cover charge keeps the park in very nice shape and is well worth the money.
  • This is a very beautiful place to visit. It's nice that a place like this is in the city, makes you think you're not even in the city. It is a fairly huge garden, so you can spend hours here. It's a nice place to take a stroll in, take a date, or even take your family to. It is easy to navigate your way around. There are a few places where you can sit down on the grass and even an area to have a picnic! Quite relaxing to be in and if you have time, I highly recommend visiting.
  • Entry is ¥300, which is a very fair price for such a beautifully kept garden. You can spend hours here. Good place for a pleasant walk with your partner. There's a cute tea house in the middle where you can rest comfortably and have some green tea and traditional sweets.
  • Beautiful place to escape the city. It has a small entry fee but is well worth it! The picturesque gardens provide a good stroll and it’s highly manicured nature provides a very aesthetic set of pictures for the family. Don’t miss the fish and turtles in the pond!
  • The bliss and peace this place can offer you is amazing! You will feel heaven on earth living in the greens of this garden. The clock stands still when your free and for book lovers, this is one of the best places to enjoy reading. Its amazing that in the midst of industries and supermarkets this place is still silent, beautiful and peaceful. Speck neat and green! A must visit garden.
