What a wonderful quiet place to visit in the heart of such a major city. It is so peaceful with lots of pleasant walks. We were there at the start, before the trees blossom and yet it was still beautiful. It must be fantastic when...More
I visited this on a Sunday morning after grabbing breakfast & a coffee at the nearby Starbucks. Sat by the lake in the early sun and enjoyed my alfresco brekkie whilst reading a good book. It was gloriously peaceful even though there were several people...More
I went to this garden by joining a local walking tour and it was worth it. The scenery was amazing and being from a country with no four seasons, it felt majestic to experience autumn while learning about the history of Tokugawa family during the...More
On our first ever visit to Japan / Tokyo in October last, we visited the garden on a sunny Sunday, and were surprised to find that there were very few people there. We spent a very pleasant hour wandering through the paths, beside ponds, and...More

A very quiet park, frequent visitors take opportunity to take photos of the aviary life. The trees are amazing, especially with the colors of the leaves changing.
This is a goldmine right in the heart of the city (a couple hundred meters just behind Tokyo...More
A must-stop that can be coupled with the Bunkyo Civic Center majestic view of Tokyo from the 25th floor. Beautifully designed, worth viewing any time of the year but especially during the spring cherry blossom season.

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.

It all depends on the weather. For example, early spring temperatures pushed the never long cherry blossom season forward at least a week this year. Many websites focusing on the tourist industry give general forecasts... More
It all depends on the weather. For example, early spring temperatures pushed the never long cherry blossom season forward at least a week this year. Many websites focusing on the tourist industry give general forecasts, and it looks like Tokyo is mid-November to early December for fall foliage. Almost all Japanese gardens are designed to be attractive in all seasons with a judicious use of evergreens.
