Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama

(4.6/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Ten years ago, rather than in recent.... Where you running until the Yokohama lost by chance. It was sankeien garden. Also early morning, parking is rattling the Chartered State Park, "is such a place in Yokohama!" that was Bon Jovi history since the Meiji era buildings, naturally rich and moved as well as find out why Miss Japanese long life. Some time was spent more than three hours with plenty of. Women invited by the smoke rising from the Japan House, enjoy the scenic views from the top of the Hill is different from 100 years ago, but a lot of people might have looked, and I'll drop by tea Act, at that time still too I guess in would be remembered fondly of pleasing the foreign tourists who awkwardly received the tea, the conversation in broken English. Go in the family is safe and peaceful, but recommended an elderly couple or still young couple even once come to go. Washed the heart really pondering in the Japan open early, was born to Japanese thought. And this place, future decades, and hundreds of years there continues, I thought.

  • 三溪園的主人搜羅非常多的文化財,配置得如詩如畫。內苑美得令人屏息,外苑給人"大塊假我以文章"的感覺,因為外苑範圍很大,這次還沒有逛完,下次要在這兒待一整天!
