The garden may be fantastic, but we never got to see it. All of their materials say daily 9-5. We went on a Monday in the early afternoon and they were closed. No clue as to why. We took a $35 taxi ride to get...More

This garden is well worth a visit even though it is a reasonable walk from the nearest subway stations. We were lucky with our visit in late March to be able to see some lovely Cherry Blossom (mush of it near the entrance). Any visit...More

A tranquil oasis just a 5 minute walk from Iidabashi Station. We were too late for the cherry blossoms and the irises and wisteria had yet to bloom, but it was still one of the loveliest gardens we have visited in Tokyo. Pleasant walks and...More

The first gardens in Tokyo, you truly feel like you escape a busy metropolis and enter an oasis. The gardens are beautifully maintained. Good signage, information and history. I highly recommend bringing a book or small picnic and stay awhile.

These were the first gardens in Tokyo that we visited in cherry blossom season, and think that I enjoyed them the most. The weeping cherry trees here were absolutely stunning, yet the gardens were not overly busy and very tranquil. There were many areas to...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
