Peaceful and quiet even with a lot of people visiting. Be sure to check out the teahouse and walk along the harbor waterfront.

This reminded me of a private park in Downtown NY but with different landscape and setting. Was very well kept and except for a few loud tourist groups was very colming and quite.

A two minute walk from Hamamatsucho station, these little gardens are a gem. Entrance was minimal, maybe 150 yen? The gardens really are an oasis of serenity - I think I was the only person moving when I visited, everyone else was either sat down...More

A horrifying trip i think i want to die on the inside. The place smelled off, smelled like stench of parched flowers. My eyes slowly deteriorated.

The Kyu-Shiba-rikyu garden is just excellent! There is a small entrance fee (150 yen) and it is well worth it. This garden is a photographer's delight! The garden is very accessible via the Yamanote line.

I had time to kill in the area, so I decided to visit this garden. It was a small garden, but for 150 yen (I believe), it was worth a visit. In a middle of a city, this garden provided a relaxing space.

Kind of stumbled upon this garden by chance. A great introduction to Japanese gardens and buildings. Offers a huge lake and tea house. Could easily spend hours here. Former home of the shoguns and imperials in Japan history. Great to see

Took some beautiful pictures of the garden and the bridges, well maintained. It was just perfect to get away from some of the city noise and just enjoy a bit of nature.

Shiva Rikyu Gardens is nor a hotel - there is a Shiba hotel in Tokyo which is reasonably priced and from recollection there are no robes supplied ..... Hope this helps
