Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama

4.4
#2 of 81 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. Add Sankeien Gardens to your Yokohama travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Yokohama driving holiday planner .

  • Signs bus stop 'sankeien garden entrance' body and the small arrow that appears. Then walk 5 min. Ago entering the flower bloomed along the road to smell good. At all, or didn't have time as the slope and take a stroll along the narrow streets to avoid. That leaves at different times depending on the type of wood or from this time I had. Cool indeed walk and the stuff at the store near the pond Amazake sake Lees.

  • 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.
