Hama Rikyu Gardens is a large, attractive landscape garden in central Tokyo. Located alongside Tokyo Bay, Hama Rikyu Gardens features seawater ponds that change level with the tides, and ‘Nakajima no Ochaya’, a tea-house on an island where visitors can rest and enjoy the scenery. The traditional Japanese styled garden stand out in comparison to the skyscrapers of the Shiodome district.

Hama Rikyu Gardens is attractive in any season. There are plenty of maple, ginkgo and other trees for their beautiful autumn colors between late November and early December. Plum blossoms at the end of February and cherry blossoms in late March or early April.

An English audio guide is available and located at the Otemon and Nakanogomon Gate entrances of Hama Rikyu Gaden.

    I think this is the best and biggest Japanese style park in Tokyo. You can enjoy different kind of flowers in each season.

    I like this picture. The contrast of buildings and a traditional garden is beyond description. I really want to stay here. If I can enjoy some japanese-style confections and green powdered tea, it must be a great experience!
