The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.

    Relaxing respite in the middle of Tokyo
    According to the guide brochure, this was a family garden of Tokugawa Shogun which functioned as an outer fort for the Edo Castle. There are many bridges, ponds, ducks, ravens, and uniquely shaped trees to make this a worthwhile break from the hectic parts of Tokyo. On your way out of the garden, notice the 300 year old pine tree. Admission was 300 yen and 150 yen for senior citizens.

    Hama Rikyi Gardens, an Urban Oasis in Tokyo
    Hama-rikyū Gardens located at the mouth of the Sumida River in Tokyo is an urban oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of the mega-city. From the Tsukiji Outer Market, it's a five-minute walk. You can easily do both in half a day.

    Tranquil place among a busy city
    This is a nice place to escape from busy Tokyo. The explanation of the duck hunting and the tea house snacks are both interesting. The gardeners keep the garden in pristine condition. Good place to visit if you happen to go to the Tsukiji Fish Market.

    Oasis in the heart of Tokyo
    1. The monorail takes you there. 2. There is a small entrence fee. 3. It is a very old park once a private garden belonging to the emperor . 4. It has an original tea house where once ex President Grant had tea with the emperor. You too can have your tea ceremony there along with a small gift shop. Shoes off. 5. Beautiful pathways and ancient trees. 6. Visited mid March and the cherry blossom have not yet bloomed. By the end of March they should have started. We hope to come here again at the beginning of April.

    The last garden
    This was the last garden we visited during our trip to Japan and of course they had some different kind of cherry blossom trees compared to the others and they were stunning. We also found a tea house in a middle of a lake and had a classic cup of matcha tea. Apparently a summer castle for the emperor once upon a time.

This park is captivating. The minute you enter you feel the perfection of Japanese gardening. One highlight was the wooden house where you can enjoy freshly brewed matcha. Perfect spot for a meditation and you can virtually see the qi flowing freely through this park. Mindblowing.

Definitely not the nicest garden we visited but it was still very nice, and impeccably maintained. There were some lovely cherry blossoms and ponds which reflected the garden and urban backdrop very nicely.

We came here from the river boat. It seemed a peaceful place amongst the rest of the urbanisation. Some very old trees still exist here. There is also a tearoom. A place to sit and contemplate.

MUST VISIT !!!!! FANTABULOUS EXPERIENCE!!!
The green tea experience at the tea house was a must do for a full complete tokyo visit . The tea house is located on an island in the middle of a zen garden the size of central park amongst the skyscrapers. So serene and relaxing with the echoing sounds of the birds in the trees and forest .
