Had time to spare between meetings & came here out of curiosity. Well sign posted from station. Traditional, small, quaint & quiet. Could imagine a nice small garden party here, or in its banquet hall.

This is a very beautiful garden. It's the most beautiful garden I have ever seen. I really recommend visiting it. Best is to go there in November / December when it's autumn colours.

I went with my foreign friend at the Kaiseki in the indivusual place. The servie, food, garden, all of the detail even include of the pocelain etc all are so beautiful hermoney and would highly recommend it 離れでゆっくりと会食させていただきました。 お食事後は、歴史的なお部屋も拝見させて頂き、 海外からの友人も日本に来るたびにまた八芳園の 離れの懐石に行きたいと言います。 お食事も美味しく、器も美しくお庭も美しく、サービスもよく 全てが和を感じられるところでした。

Very small garden. Pretty garden but not worth travelling for. In early March.. not much flowers are blooming. Maybe better for mid spring. The restaurant there have limited food choices and also costly. Maybe couples taking picturea for wedding. Not for tourist.

A beautiful garden that offers a 300 year old tree, a authentic Tea House nestled on the water, with the modern city skyline in it's back ground. Definately worth a visit.

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
