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
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

Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace.

It all depends on the weather. For example, early spring temperatures pushed the never long cherry blossom season forward at least a week this year. Many websites focusing on the tourist industry give general forecasts, and it looks like Tokyo is mid-November to early December for fall foliage. Almost all Japanese gardens are designed to be attractive in all seasons with a judicious use of evergreens.
