This was my first visit to a park in Japan and it did not disappoint. The crowds are nonexistent when I went and I suspect for the most part of the fall season. That said, having a few tall buildings in the back while having...More

Gardens are well maintained. Plenty of benches, water fountains a day toilets. Recommend the free audio tour. ¥300 entry is worth it and 300 year old pine a must see.

A very beautiful garden for your morning stroll. It's surreal to be in the place so tranquil & calm yet so near to Tokyo skyscrapers. You can also take Tokyo river cruise from here..

this place would be a great option for you. Only takes 10 minutes walk from the metro station and cost $3 per person. The tea room offers authentic green tea and Japanese sweet with $5 - 7 and great view of pond and garden.

Excellent, must-see park. On the Tokyo bay waterfront, this park is compact but not crowded and makes for a very pleasant visit. The tea house in the middle of the lake is very attractive, and a good place to stop for a cup of green...More

Stop #2 after Tsukiji Market, we wandered around the garden, saw the 300 yr old pine, the tea houses, ponds and other Shogun era attractions, was pleasant but not very inspiring.

shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a
hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is
