Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
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. Plan your visit to Hama Rikyu Gardens and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tokyo trip itinerary planner.

  • After the Asakusa tourism, let's take a Sunrise Pier water bus.   After enjoying the River, disembark at the Hama-Rikyu Gardens along the way. Hama-Rikyu Gardens located in the high-rise buildings is a healing space atmosphere quiet.   Full of interesting historical episode. It is wondrous touched play boating and feudal lords.

  • Widely but is an oasis in the city. Nature in front of tall buildings and contrast is very good. When I went in the spring before the season of cherry blossoms cherry enjoyed was so crowded, 牛歩 everywhere. If you take your daytime on weekdays is recommended.

  • A wonderful garden sitting in the busy Ginza district, it feels like a place out of time The entrance is a mere 300 yen but make sure you check out the opening times since you're not allowed to go in 30 minutes before the closing time Inside the park there's also a small house where the tea ceremony is held, so you can enjoy a hot tea while sitting on a small desk overlooking a pond that makes you forget about the skiscrapers watching you from outside the park
  • It was February when I visited this place, which was probably not the best time of year to visit to enjoy the beauty of this place as it was a little too earlier for the blossoms. That aside, it's a peaceful and tranquil place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city - it was much less busy than the other parks and tourist attractions I visited. I was staying in Asakusa so being able to catch the last water taxi back there was very convenient. I highly recommend a visit to this place when in Tokyo.
  • For a nice stroll. Especially recommended during Sakura season or middle of March due to Nanohana blooming.
  • Very peaceful gardens in a busy city, not a lot of people come here. So come here if you want to relax and get away from al the city noises.
  • Lovely park in the bay area! Pretty landscape design and trees. On the right side from the entrance you can find an authentic looking tea house and beautiful ponds with bridges.
