This is quite a small garden near the sword museum. It's quite pretty, with lovely plants and a pond.

Stumbled on this beautiful place on my way to the sword museum in Ryoduku. The gardens are simply stunning, with lots of large coy carp and turtles in the lovely pond who come right up to see you as you get closer to the edge. Well worth a free visit if in Tokyo, right by the JR Station in Ryoduku.

規模の小さい回遊式の日本庭園です。無料で利用できる上に周回だけなら10分程度で済むため、時間が余った時に少し立ち寄る等でも充分な場所です。
中心の池には亀や鯉、四季折々の花々を楽しむことが出来る一方で、庭園の周囲は首都高速やビルが建ち並ぶため、圧迫感があり庭園そのものの風情とのバランスの悪さが感じられます。規模の小ささからベンチなどの休憩スペースも限られているため、大人数で庭園を楽しめるところではない上に、あまりゆったりとした気持ちで庭園を楽しむことは出来ないかもしれません。周囲には多数の観光スポットがありながらこの庭園には休日でもそれほど多くの観光客が訪れてはいません。しかし近くに高速道路があると、自動車の騒音が気になるかもしれません。
あまり大きな期待を持たず、少しの時間を散策に使う程度で利用するといいでしょう。

It is a small Japanese-style garden. It can be used free of charge, and takes only 10 minutes if you just go around. You can feel the beauty of Japanese gardens such as carps, turtles in the central pond, and seasonal flowers, but because the Metropolitan Expressway and buildings are lined up around it, you may feel oppressive and uncomfortable due to the imbalance between the garden and the surrounding landscape.
There are rest areas such as benches, but the number is small. Therefore, it is not suitable to use it in large numbers. In addition, you may think that the noise of cars in Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway drown out the atmosphere of this Japanese garden.
When using it, you should not have great expectations. You should think of it as a way to spend your spare time.

This garden of a samurai's residence fairly recently (I think in the last year) went from charging admission to being a free public park that one can walk through, using several entrances. Along with that, new path lights, new path stabilization mats, new gravel and various other upgrades have been installed, none compromising the garden's integrity.

The garden, though one of the smaller traditional gardens in the municipal parks system, is likely more authentic than larger ones that were refurbished by owners during the early 20th century. It now serves as a traditional setting for the new building of the Japanese Sword Museum.

Across the street is Yokoami-chō Park with the Municipal Memorial Hall remembering victims of the 1923 earthquake and fires, and of the 1945 firebombing.

Nothing really special about this garden. If you're in the area, ok to visit. Otherwise don't bother.

For traditional garden aficionados, this rather small garden, easily accessed from nearby Sumo arena has a little secret to know!
The pond is fed by water from the nearby Sumida river, which is also fed by Tokyo bay.So, across the pond are the stepping stones or "tobi ishi" which can be crossed by visitors depending on the sea tides!
Try your luck !?

Small quaint park centered with a pond filled with koi and turtles...

Walkways are adorned with flowering trees and maples that will rust when frost hits.

Small memorial stones also dot about the park.

We stumbled across this little oasis during a visit to the sword museum. A wonderful location, serene and peaceful. Not too big, but a beautiful place to sit and contemplate life.

The garden is well maintained without any entrance fee. Worth a short visit if you are already in the area or if you need a quick break to cool down from the heath.

Free entry to very well maintained garden with plenty of beautiful benches to sit on as well as a small grassy area. Several koi and many tortoises in the lake.
