Beautiful, tranquil gardens with plenty to explore and photograph. My wife and I had a wonderful time here and it turned out to be an unexpected highlight of our time in Tokyo. I would highly recommend this spot for some down time and a relaxing walk.

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.

5tips for visitors
If you visit there in summer ,don’t forget to take a mosquito repellent spray.
Actually there are a lot of mosquitoes everywhere during summer.
In spring you can see an amazing cherry blossom tree in full bloom near the entrance.
It’s so big tree and it is called “shidare Sakura”in Japan.
So many people visit there to take pictures. During special weeks it is illuminated after sunset.
In autumn you can see beautiful autumn leaves here and there .
The best time to see autumn leaves is from mid November to early December.
At a perfect period to see autumn leaves ,some trees are illuminated after sunset.
You can drink matcha at the small cafe “Fukiage-Chaya”in the middle of the garden.
And during illuminated trees period ,closing time extends pm9:00.
you can drink beer and taste some traditional snacks at the food stand.
am 9:00-pm5:00. （But you have to enter at least by pm4:30.!!)
I hope you will have a great time there. Enjoy!!
