Hamarikyu Gardens(浜離宮恩賜庭園)

Discover a tranquil oasis in the heart of Tokyo at the Hamarikyu Gardens. Nestled on the edge of Tokyo Bay, this Edo-period garden offers a unique glimpse into Japan’s past. As you step into the garden, you’ll be greeted by the sight of the Nakajima teahouse, a structure that appears to be floating on the water of the Tide Inlet Pond. The only Edo Garden to incorporate seawater, it creates a natural and ever-changing landscape. 

Take a leisurely stroll through the gardens and admire the impressive 300-year-old pine tree, carefully pruned into an impressive weeping expanse. Explore the flower fields that offer nearly year-round blooms including vibrant peonies, colza, and cosmos. The garden is a perfect place to see the beauty of nature, with blooming plum and cherry trees in spring and the autumn foliage that peaks in November.

But the Hamarikyu Gardens offer more than just natural beauty. With a rich history dating back centuries, the gardens served as a feudal and imperial retreat before being opened to the public in 1946. Come and experience the serenity and history of the Hamarikyu Gardens for yourself. Immerse in the serene atmosphere and take a step back in time, as you escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
