Hamarikyu Gardens 浜離宮恩賜庭園

Hamarikyu Gardens
Featured book

Hamarikyu is one of the largest traditional Japanese gardens in Tokyo. Laid in the 17th century for a feudal lord, Hamarikyu was subsequently used by the Shogun as a hunting ground. The estate was remodeled as a public garden park in 1946. It is an oasis of peace and quiet in the midst of central Tokyo's urban jungle.

The gardens are surrounding by a moat of sea water from the Tokyo Bay. They offer lovely views on both Shiodome and Odaiba. Visitors can enjoy a cup of macha (traditional green tea) at the tea house over the pond.

Every day from 10:30 am and 1:30 pm shows are held with falcons and Japanese goshawks demonstrating the traditional hunting techniques.
