A must-stop that can be coupled with the Bunkyo Civic Center majestic view of Tokyo from the 25th floor. Beautifully designed, worth viewing any time of the year but especially during the spring cherry blossom season.

We have visited this garden more than once and find it to be a very well maintained and excellent example of a Japanese stroll garden. Begun in the 1600s and of historical significance it is well worth a visit. It has a lovely lake and...More

Our favourite and the oldest gardens in Tokyo, many miniature gardens from other parts of Japan and China all joined together

The Koishikawa is a japanese garden that is close to Tokyo dome and Iidabashi train station. But it is not my favorite garden in Tokyo. Therefore only three points, because I am missing something.

I visited here on a very hot and humid August Morning. The gardens are beautiful with a large pond in the middle. They are also very peaceful and have lots of places to sit and rest in the shade. The gardens are not particularly large...More

The garden may be fantastic, but we never got to see it. All of their materials say daily 9-5. We went on a Monday in the early afternoon and they were closed. No clue as to why. We took a $35 taxi ride to get...More

This garden is well worth a visit even though it is a reasonable walk from the nearest subway stations. We were lucky with our visit in late March to be able to see some lovely Cherry Blossom (mush of it near the entrance). Any visit...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
