Kyu-Shiba-rikyu Gardens旧芝離宮恩賜庭園

Garden

These are daimyo (feudal lord) gardens in the style of the early Edo period located in Tokyo’s Minato City. They are circuit-style gardens built in the palace of Tadatomo Okubo, an official from the Edo period. Buildings and trees were damaged after the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923, but the next year, in 1924, the garden was donated as part of a marriage celebration from the Imperial Prince to the City of Tokyo, then were restored and opened to the public in April of the same year. In 1979, Kyu-Shiba-rikyu Gardens were nominated as one of the countries’ Places of Scenic Beauty. They are a three-minute walk from Hamamatsucho Station.

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.
