Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama
(4.5/5 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.
