Located in Minato-ku, Tokyo, these Japanese gardens were originally a daimyo garden for a Okubo Tadatomo, one of the councilors for the shogunate in the Edo period. It is presently one of the remaining daimyo gardens in Tokyo, and is designated as a national scenic location.
Highlights and Facilities
The main attraction is the garden centred around a pond. It was formerly an ocean water pond but it is now a freshwater pond due to changes in landscape in the island due to tides. The pond bank and rocks are modelled on Chinese gardens, and in the park are flowers for every season, including azaleas, blooming wisterias, irises, hydrangeas, narcissus, camellia, and Japanese clover. The wisteria trellis near the entrance in particular has become a big attraction. From mid-December to mid-March you can see lingering snow on unbroken branches, because the Kanto region has less snow it takes on a decorative appearance. There is also an archery range in the park and you can practice with a bow if you have one.
Transportation: Using a public transport it's just a 1 minute walk from Hamamatsucho Station. Parking: Not available, so it is not recommended you come by car.
