Rikugien Gardens六義園

Park / Green Space

Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu, who served the shogunate as a Tairo-kaku (“Great Elder”) during the era of Tokugawa Tsunayoshi, the fifth-generation Tokugawa shogun, created this garden in an area full of daimyo residences. With its undulating paths and well-planned design, the Japanese garden is particularly famous for its azaleas and weeping sakura close to the garden entrance. The gardens are lit up at night during the spring when cherry blossoms are in bloom and again in autumn when the foliage is turning colors. The garden evokes scenery of Kishu (in Wakayama) with the middle Daisensui Pond and its Nakanoshima Island. Many foreign tourists enjoy visiting Rikugien.

          Tokyo Main Areas


          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
