My mother and I spent about an hour in this lovely park and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Well worth a visit, especially if you don't get the chance to see parks in other parts of Japan. It is the prettiest in Tokyo, I think.

North of all of Tokyo’s major attractions, you must dedicate some subway time to get here but it’s worth it. Flowers were beautifully in bloom on the spring day I visited. Meticulously manicured and designed plants, trees and lakes are quite the feast for the...More

A very beautiful and we'll maintained "garden". A variety of routes to enjoy through several distinct garden styles. While busy, it is still easy to find peace and quiet - to enjoy this magnificent scenery.

It's impossible to find gardens without people in Tokyo, but compared to everywhere else we went this was pretty quiet. Perhaps it's because it was during cherry blossoming season, and there aren't any cherries here, but it was really very nice.

As for "pre booking" as I say, as a public park operated by Tokyo Metropolitan Government - as such, and as a public facility, there is no "booking" or "pre booking".
