Happoen Garden, Minato

4.4
#12 of 254 in Parks in Tokyo
Favored as a wedding venue, Happoen Garden features lush tree species and colorful flowers. Stroll through the garden grounds to admire its carefully-manicured assortment of cherry trees, azaleas, waterfalls, and more, laid out over the foundation of a historic residential complex. Don't miss the garden's bonsai collection, including a pine tree that's over 500 years old. Afterwards, stop by the garden's teahouse to indulge in some treats and refreshments. Keep in mind that some areas may be restricted at times due to weddings and other events taking place.

  • You can taste the beauty of Japan gardens in the heart of the city. Wedding ceremonies are held Saturday and Sunday but not to disturb within, please feel free to garden tours. Guests can enjoy cherry, azalea, green, maple, snow and the different landscapes depending on the season. Swims in pond carp were colorful and beautiful. And if you get tired, you can drink Matcha green tea tea cafes, you can take a break. Also in the restaurant when you are cooking course is recommended.

  • Awesome garden and resort! Staff is incredibly friendly and catered food was excellent! Garden is peaceful with cool infrastructure and coy pond. Thanks Happo-en!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
