This garden pairs very well with its larger neighbor from Hama Rikyu, so you can visit both on the same jaunt. It was built during the Edo period on reclaimed land. A stone's throw from Hamamatsucho Station on the Yamanote line.

We had a 2 hour break from the big city bustle. The gardens and lakes are beautiful and is a good place to have a picnic lunch. Admission is cheap with seniors half that at 150Y.

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.

restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The
