“One of the 9 great parks of the city; very special rocks and much wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you have a week inTokyo, or less if you already kinow the sites or are a park fan, this is not to be missed. the turtles and carp and heron and amazing rocks brought from all over Japan are superb. Especially liked the rocks placed along the shore to let you have the experience of walking on them. two kinds of turtles, one a leatherback or alligator snout I believe.

“A typical Japanese style garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

It is not a large one compared to other famous Japanese gardens. It is easy to get to from Kiyosumishirakawa station on either Oedo Line (Pink) and Hanzomon Line (Purple). It has a usual pond with Koi, a tea house and beautifully designed trees and flowers. It is nice to visit in the late fall when leaves change colors and also in the Cherry blossom season.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

This park had everything to give us a great, restful afternoon out. Difficult to find such a wonderful green space in Tokyo without the crowds. Don't be put off by the JPY150 each to get in ... this cost is put to maintaining the wonderful Japanese style gardens. Buy the fish bread from the kiosk (or take your own - cheaper to buy a loaf from close by Family Mart) and most importantly you can feed the fish - feed the birds - feed the turtles - without contravening the "NO Food to Wildlife" rules that dominate most of Tokyo parks. Note: last entry is at 4.30pm - park closes at 5pm

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

From all the Japanese gardens I visited, I liked this one the most. Besides its beauty, it was fun buying special dry bread (150 yen) and feeding seagulls, ducks and fish with it. Watch seagulls catching pieces of bread in the mid air and fish fighting for bread crumbs! Make sure to take pictures :-).

“Strollong style Japanese garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

This is a nice strollong style Japanese garden. You can buy special food at the store inside and feed Koi, turtles and dukcs at the pond. I think you are not supposed to feed the food you brougut in. I've never seen such big Koi in other places. Off course you can brong your lunch in and feed yourself too. If you don't have much time in Tokyo, this garden in not the first choice, but if you just want to unwind, this is the place to go.
