Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama

4.4
#2 of 82 in Parks in Yokohama
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.

    Municipal bus from JR Negishi station to sankeien garden South Gate entrance. Rainy days in the summer but very few people. They visited 2 times. Today's Sankei Hall exhibitions because some were closed for 見renakatta was disappointing. In Soba Noodles and dumplings!

    Cherry blossoms around the green around the foliage season, each beautiful landscape you can enjoy. I am happy to Yokohama still exist so wide has a nice garden. You into the building doctor was once invited you, not general admission and looked at the view from the room on the second floor, was positively stunning! Will you ask after the doctor Hara was worthy, that was a grandchild of the Sankei's. Cherry, thank you Sir.

    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.
