Not easy to get to. From the Train station, need to take a bus and another 15 min walk. But so worth it, gardens are beautifully kept. Lots of nook and corners to explore and see. Hot spot for bridal photography.

On our recent trip to Japan, we grabbed the opportunity to visit the Sankeisn Gardens. Sadly, as the Blossoms had arrived early, we can only imagine how beautiful this area would have been during the very short Season. We did manage to find one lovely...More

Great gardens especially when the cherry blossom is in full bloom. This is a very popular spot for tourist buses so expect large crowds. It is easily reached by public bus from anywhere in Yokohama. Very popular spot for photographers with the lakes and trees...More

These gardens were a delight to walk through and in particular the water features with the amazing Koi Carp fish. The walking paths are well signed posted with no difficult steps etc. Public transport takes you close to the gardens but return journey is better...More

This garden is a must go visit during the cherry blossom period. Its landscaping is simply gorgeous. While the entrance fee is steep and a good 20-30min walk from the nearest JR station, it is absolutely worth your time and effort. While there were lots...More

These gardens are probably the prettiest that I've seen in Japan. This was especially so as we visited during Hanami and the cherry blossom was in bloom. A bit of a trek to get to though with regular buses numbers 8 and 148 from Yokohama...More

Enjoyed Cherry Blossoms, tea, views and the history. Visited here during the Full cherry blossom days. It looked so great! Joined a volunteer tour in Japanese. Learned the history. Had a green tea and some sweets. Bitter and sweet 😊 Had a great day

The best Japanese garden in Yokohama, although that’s not really saying much when compared with the greats of Kyoto. Still, Sankeien is pleasant enough for a strolling garden, as long as visitors do not expect a “Zen Experience”.
