Hama-rikyu Gardens

浜離宮恩賜庭園(休業中)

This is a traditional garden located in the Chuo City of Tokyo with a unique Shioiri-no-ike (pond). “Shioiri” is a technique of drawing in sea water and using its tidal movements to change the shape of the pond. Hama-rikyu is one of the most famous Edo period gardens with its Shioiri-no-ike and its two goose-hunting places. On the island in the middle of the pond is the “Nakajima-no-ochaya (central island teahouse)” where guests can have tea and traditional cakes. The gardens are a nine-minute walk from Shiodome Station. In spring, visitors can enjoy the cherry blossoms, while in autumn cosmos flowers and colorful fall foliage make for splendid sights.

    Beautiful garden surrounded by the Tokyo cityscape

    I visited in the depths of winter so probably not the best time of the year to appreciate the best of the park. I am still amazed at what the Japanese do to their trees over many decades - turning... more

    Can’t NOT go here

    It’s so central, you can’t not go. Amazing space. Quite a bit under repair (Nov 19), but still exceptional. Combine it with either the Advertising Museum (5 mins walk), Ginza (15 mins walk) or a... more
