One of the oldest and most famous landscape gardens of the Kanto Region. The modern buildings in the background might be an eyesore for some visitors, but overall, the garden is serene and peaceful. Also, very conveniently located next to the Tokyo Dome entertainment hub for those seeking a change of ambience later.
Beautiful and well maintained landscape garden. It's lovely and tranquil with lots of ponds, bridged and stone sculptures. It is like any other Japanese Garden. They have tried to create miniatures of many famous places. The walking trails weave through the gardens and all the viewpoints. The views are amazing. It can be enjoyed in all seasons though I was told that it is at it's best during Autumn and Spring. It is not hard to imagine as there are dozens of maple, cherry and ginkgo trees. It even has a rice field tucked away in a corner. It's ideally situated very close to the Tokyo Dome and the local train and subway stations.
