Beautiful Japanese garden! We had a lovely time taking a break there and found the garden great. We even had the chance to see a traditional Japanese performance for free! There's also a tea house where you can buy refreshments and snacks and enjoy the great view. Just be careful to not wear short clothes. We were there at the beginning of October and I had a lot of Mosquito bites unfortunately.

六義園 (Rakugi-en Garden) is a famous tourist attraction in Tokyo. This park consists of many artificial landscape like pond, hill, tree, creek and bridge. I visited here in maple season (November) and it is lucky there is a night-light activity for those beautiful maple trees. I take a lot of pictures for the night scene and recommend everyone can visit here in maple season (about from October to November, better check the predicting weather report)

This traditional garden is small that I finished my visit in 1 hour, but I got a serenity and astonished image in my brain.

Japanese gardens are like no others, and this one is no exception. Fantastic from every angle. Everything feels carefully juxtaposed and looked after. Nothing fancy loud, it is like walking into a traditional Japanese painting. It’s that good.

Let me propose the best way here.

In Spring for cherry blossom season, the best way is go and buy tickets in the morning, and wait till it's getting dark, by having lunch and dinner around. Then get into the garden. Otherwise you'll spend half an hour for just buying a ticket.
Inside the garden, not that much cherry blossom than I expected. But it's well treated and organized.
