This garden was located right behind our hotel, so were fortunate to walk around. There were 3 weddings going on - a very important day for weddings... so we were not able to get everywhere but we saw enough that we will go back again....More

Beautifully designed Japanese garden nestled among buildings. Not too far from Shirokanedai station. The bonsais on display are hundreds of years old. Be sure to taste Japanese tea at the tea house!

While not the most expansive park, this is a beautiful Japanese garden to visit, with fabulous buildings, bonsai and surrounds. We were really pleased we visited here, simple and stunning.

Small Japanese garden but delightful, right near the Sheraton Hotel. Extra Bonus - wedding hall is on site so on weekends and holidays you can catch a wedding party or two (we saw two parties on two separate occasions). Recomended

This was a short but sweet stop on my walking tour of the area. It was quiet as the garden was getting ready for a wedding. I enjoyed the scenery and the bonsai trees were impressive! Would go back again if I’m in the area...More

Although the Japanese garden is part of a giant wedding hall, outsiders and non-guests of the wedding can stroll around this fabulous pond garden, which is especially impressive when the azaleas are in bloom in May

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

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
