MUST SEE! This garden is amazing. Super beautiful and peaceful. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to just walk around and enjoy the scenery. Get some green tea at one of the tea shops in the garden.

Absolutely must take your time to visit. Incredibly beautiful. Allow for 1 hour or more to walk around, and maybe enjoy some green tea at the cafe overlooking the central pond.

Nice small, but beautiful park, with a great view from the hill. Several pads give different views on the park and its semi islands. Very relaxing, you feel like in a zen bubble.

Came here for sakura night viewing. The heavens opened up against the night sky. We took refuge under a hut in the gardens constructed next to a stream. With nowhere to go, the patter of the raindrops with the bubbling flow of water created instant zen.
Other than this chance encounter, Rikugien offers amazing night Sakura. The single tree by the entrance is almost worth the price of admission by itself but Rikugien offers much more than just that. A simply amazing experience.

Very beautiful park. Trees, architecture and flowers are wonderful. My preference around Komagome. The rhododendron ‘mountain’ is spectacular. Forest ambiance guaranteed.
