A very beautiful and we'll maintained "garden". A variety of routes to enjoy through several distinct garden styles. While busy, it is still easy to find peace and quiet - to enjoy this magnificent scenery.

It's impossible to find gardens without people in Tokyo, but compared to everywhere else we went this was pretty quiet. Perhaps it's because it was during cherry blossoming season, and there aren't any cherries here, but it was really very nice.

A beautiful garden; spacious, with very tall, large, old trees that set this garden apart from others. Very photogenic with ponds and bridges too. Quite crowded as the two main cherry trees were blooming, but the crowd here drifted along in a more tranquil mood...More

A lovely small garden, so tranquil. You can't believe you are so close to the busy city. It is worth a visit. Lots of gorgeous little areas, trees, rocks, bridges etc. Beautiful!

We visited at Christmas time and found the garden to be a place of peace and beauty - in the middle of the hubbub of Tokyo. Well worth the visit!

As for "pre booking" as I say, as a public park operated by Tokyo Metropolitan Government - as such, and as a public facility, there is no "booking" or "pre booking".
