It is now the site of a five star hotel, and the garden is open to the public for all people at admission free. Seasonal flowers and trees are planted, and each season has different scenery. Especially when the cherry blossoms bloom from the end of... More

Great walk through the garden with lots of walks and nature, water calming sound and the Japanese BBQ lunch at the bottom restaurant was superb. Greatly enjoyed and recommended if you are around Tokyo.

Although there are many first-class hotels in Tokyo now, Hotel Chinzanso is the place to stay, if you want to stay in a tranquility, out of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo!! You can see the wonderful Japanese Garden from your room. If you are looking for crowds or nightlife, go to Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, or Shibuya !! But, after your... More

We began our trip to Japan in Tokyo and were so happy we had selected to stay at Hotel Chinzanso. We were overwhelmed by the warm welcome we received by members of the staff waiting outside to greet us. The hotel is grand and has a refined elegance. The surroundings are quiet and the gardens exquisite, especially with the cherry... More

I was actually here in February 2015, but forgot to write my review. The weather was very accomodating for a stroll around the gardens after lunch. The gardens are beautiful and so relaxing; especially when you take into consideration the fact that you are in the middle of a very busy city! I highly recommend visiting this garden...especially when everything... More
