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.

  • It is a large garden. Yokohama is so wide, and the atmosphere is expanding. Could not go, but I wanted to go for the period of foliage. There are bus from Negishi station, etc. I think it is not good, but not how.

  • Mid-December in the late morning of the weekend visit. Parking area near the main gate was OK enough space in the parking lot near the South Gate. And still leaves shooting spots and quaint, but overall it was dying foliage of laid trails and roof, in some places, enjoy 10 minutes. At Sankei Hall green tea by tea 500 yen Japanese-style confection with a dose. You will also experience and wish to make a Matcha green tea and was very happy for elementary school children. Also sankeien Garden House is in front of the large outer garden pond hand-baked dango (150-200 yen / book) is glue anko and Mitarashi, soy sauce and other on a variety of very tasty, as is. Sankeien garden presence spring Islands and want to see about half a day designated to hear fall, former tomyo-ji Temple pagoda and placed in the large garden, carefully to see if it is. I think to like have attachment to the city Yokohama sightseeing spots. All considered from to for the experience of Boston went several times to different!
