“Skip this During the Summer”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

There's really not much to see in this well kept east gardens of the Imperial Palace. Visit the Meiji Jingu Shrine that's much cooler in the summer instead.

“No flowers but grounds are pretty”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

July is not a great time to see the gardens, as very few flowers are in bloom.

However, it was nice to walk through the gardens and learn about the history of the area. The information plaques are written in English and most of the writing is legible.

“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Although it was raining, the walk through the beautifully maintained gardens was lovely. The water Iris display was impressive. As were the ponds with Koi Carp.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This place is a great place to stroll around when the weather is great. The gardens are quite pleasant and huge, it will take you a couple of hours to get around the gardens. Something about it is very relaxing
