Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama

4.4
#2 of 82 in Parks in Yokohama
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • I heard at the beginning of December. Holiday was like parking spaces. Cherry blossoms and Autumn period should use public transportation. Inside the Park are red colored based on where places are and what not it was. Bright red fall foliage is beautiful yellow and orange in the scenery began to color is nice. Some people have taken at weddings and pure white dress up in the Park.

  • A lovely garden where Japan is seen. June were seen, the events will be held. It is recommended to use buses and taxis is a little inconvenient, but if you have time to pegli.

  • You can experience the four seasons of fun. Comparable to the Tokugawa family, Lords of the City Garden. And when little inconvenient problem as much as possible yourself to drive a car to go. Nice DATE course as well but time slowly a generation or so that you can recommend (^ _-)-☆

  • Pretty garden. Enjoy old lady making 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
  • Quiet Japanese garden with many traditiona, historical buildings. Costs 500yen to enter but worth it. Can enjoy all seasons with seasons flowers. Minimal eating facility inside.
  • Such a beautiful and tranquil location and very easy to get to from Yokohama. I stayed for about 3 hours and took my time exploring all of the areas of the Gardens. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has the time to visit, especially during the cherry blossom season.
  • 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.
  • I loved this place. I was recommended by the women that i met on the Yoshimuraya ramen. I am really grateful to her about the suggestion.
