Mukojima Hyakkaen Gardens is located in Sumida district in Tokyo. The garden was originally created by a merchant in 1805, and since then, it has been providing year-round enjoyment to many locals and visitors. Although it was once burned down completely during WWII, it was rebuilt in 1949, and now it is one of a few remaining gardens from Edo-period.

The garden is filled with hundreds of different flowers blooming in various seasons, so visitors can enjoy seeing different faces of the garden depending on when you visit. One of the best times to visit is in September to experience the tunnel made out of Lespedeza; it is breathtaking to go through the 30-meter long flower tunnel. In addition to the flowers, the garden is also a home for many wild birds and insects; being able to enjoy this natural habitat is not an ordinary experience in the middle of Tokyo.

The garden also has a building that features meeting rooms of various sizes for a fee. A space surrounded by flowers and tees would be a perfect place for company retreat or reunion gatherings.

The garden is located within a walking distance from various train stations. it is open year-round except for the year-end (29th – 31st of December) each year. The regular admission fee is 150 yen, and it is open from 9 am to 5 pm.
