Hamarikyu Gardens (Hamarikyu Onshi Teien)

Post: Thursday July 6, 2017

"Hamarikyu Gardens", a large Japanese garden, lies in halfway between Hamatsucho Sta. and Shinbashi Sta. on JR Yamanote Line, near Shiodome Sta. on Ooedo Line and facing Tokyo Bay.

This garden was initially developed as a villa for Tokugawa Shogun family in Edo era (in 17th century). It completed the development to have the present form when Ienari Tokugawa, the 11th Shogun, was in his throne.
After Meiji era, it became an annex for the imperial family and changed the name to "Hamarikyu". Presently, it is designated as national special place of scenic beauty and historical importance, and is partially opened to public for fees.

Hamarikyu gardens

Trees for all seasons are planted in a beautifully organized garden; which harmonize with ponds, a teahouse and flower gardens gracefully.


The 300 years old pine trees planted in Edo era are worth seeing.


Hours: 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. (The entrance closes after 4:30 p.m.)
