Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama

(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Stroll the winding paths of Sankeien Gardens, a traditional Japanese-style garden noted for its historic buildings sprinkled among the ponds and bamboo groves. Built in 1908, the gardens once formed part of a private residence belonging to a wealthy silk trader, and his family house still stands overlooking the other significant pagodas and tea rooms. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the flowered trails and undulating streams, which change with the seasons, adorned with cherry blossoms in spring and vibrant leaves in the early fall. The pond comes to life in summer, when the pink lotus blooms. Put Sankeien Gardens into our Yokohama vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 我是在2017的4月初的星期一前往;如果是一開園9點鐘到,人會比較少,在園內的散步路線走著挺優閒的~內有文物館及不定時的展覽可以無料觀賞。館內似乎有抹茶道可以付費體驗~感覺時間不趕的人應該值得試試。十點半後人潮會漸漸多起來,但也不會多到人擠人就是了。平常的時候草地是不能進入的,但是在櫻花季好像有"規定的幾天"是可以進入草地野餐,因為這次去的時候氣候異變,整體櫻花原本該滿開但也遲了,到的時候隨櫻花品...  more »

  • Pretty garden. Enjoy old lady making your our matcha tea. Big pond with fish and lovely turtle sun bathing by the lake. Many kind of trees and herb in this all season garden. Such a peaceful walk here
  • One of the best place to visit in Yokohama. You can stay for long hours. Enjoy the beauty of nature with Meditative vibes. Tea ceremony is also organized inside. Ravindranath Tagore once visited here and it's mentioned also.
  • Fantastic garden. Several traditional Japanese estate homes to visit and explore. Tranquil and inviting.
  • A beutiful garden with old, traditional, japanese houses. It is very colorful at Fall time.
  • A beautiful, spacious traditional Japanese garden. It has beautiful plants, flowers and waters. There is plenty of shadow under the trees and benches to rest at, a souvenir shop and a museum. Next to the shop is a place where you can experience the traditional tea ceremony and try to make your own, with instructions from a master. All in all a very good experience to be had.
