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.

It's really a nice park, quite spacious with beautiful scenery. There is also a unique tea house and since it's surrounded by nature it becomes the perfect place to take a stroll or just spend time reading your favorite book. The only thing is that you have to pay for the entrance fee.

A great experience, we tried also the tea cerimony. Highly suggested and touching moment in a magical environment. Splendid people that explained the meaning of the tea cerimony

Despite visiting in winter, it was easily one of the most beautiful of the gardens I visited in Tokyo. A prime example of a walking garden, the route is easy to follow and get the most of the experience without having to backtrack. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo.
