Another lovely garden in Tokyo. It must be incredible during cherry blossom season. We went out of our way to go to this one - but I wouldn't rank it above the one outside of the Meji Shrine. Peaceful, great walk, old growth - lovely!...More

Though not gaining the fame of a park such as Ueno, this is a true Japanese garden. The paths meander and each turn provides a new view. We spent an hour of surprises there.

My mother and I spent about an hour in this lovely park and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Well worth a visit, especially if you don't get the chance to see parks in other parts of Japan. It is the prettiest in Tokyo, I think.

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".
