Happoen Koen (Gardens) is one of the best in Tokyo. Located in the Shirogane/Takanawa neighborhoods, it is fantastic. Highly recommend year round, but is at its peak in the Fall colors or in April during Sakura (Cherry Blossoms). Small charge to enter.

This is a beautiful Japanese garden, an oasis amidst the busy city. The Bonsai trees were lovely. We spent more than a few minutes at the large pond filled with colorful carp. The whole place just fills you with peace and wonder at the beautiful...More

Wow, we stumbled across this garden as our plans to visit the imperial palace and gardens fell through. This place is amazing and worth the effort is 2-3 minutes walk from Happeon station and a real treat. Full of old bonsai perhaps I loved it...More

Along with Meiji Kinenkan and Gajoen, Happoen is one of the top/most upscale wedding places in Tokyo. It has a great garden. Restaurant was fine, but if I have to choose just one place, I'd choose Gajoen to visit.

While a way an hour or so in the traditional garden, awestruck at the bonsai on display-- some are over 500 years old-- and winding paths. Then Treat yourself to a traditional tea ceremony. The tea ceremony was not quite what I expected, as the...More

This classical Japanese Garden is only about 200 metres from Shirokanedai Metro station. It's very well manicured- all the shrubs, trees, the lawns, and bonsais- all trimmed and in place. It took a leisurely 30 minutes to look over the whole garden. At this time...More

The place is very peaceful. One of the most quiet places in Tokyo. The place is filled with green. Sometimes there are people taking their wedding pictures there. Very majestic.

This is a very well presented and maintained garden area with a lovely pool as a central attraction. Banzai plants dating back hundreds of years are on display and the garden layout is outstanding. The superb gardens make it a very attractive place for weddings....More

We were taken here on the recommendation of our volunteer guide, Ihara. Tranquil setting, with large pond full of colourful carp, and good examples of Bonai trees, some of which were over 500 years old!

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
