Stroll through Rikugien Garden, a peaceful oasis inspired by poetry in the heart of Tokyo. Signage in English explains the connection between the gardens and excerpts of poetry, as you enjoy the scenery of cherry blossoms and the park's small pond. The park really shines during the autumn months, as lights illuminate the red and orange hues of the foliage after dark. You can find amenities throughout the garden, including snack stalls and restrooms. To visit Rikugien Garden on your trip to Tokyo, use our Tokyo trip tool .

Rikugien Garden Reviews
関東に住んでいてこの六義園を知らないのはもったいない、と思う位の名園です。山手線駒込駅から徒歩10分くらいで正門に着きます。正面から入るとすぐに蓬莱島が見えます。ここから見える島の美しさと威容は感動ものです。六義園の良いところは、東京山手線の内側にありながら、周辺のビルがほとんど見えずに庭園を楽しめることです。 more »It is a famous garden of the place where I think that it is a waste not to know this Rokugien living in Kanto. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from Komagome Station on the Yamanote Line. As soon as you enter from the front, you can see The Island. The beauty and majesty of the island seen from here is impressive. The good thing about Rokugien is that you can enjoy the garden with little view of the surrounding buildings while being inside the Tokyo Yamanote Line.
Amazing garden in Tokyo. Highly recommend visit the garden in Autumn. Night view was simply amazing with red leaves. more »
It's really a nice park, quite spacious with beautiful scenery. There is also a unique tea house and since it's surrounded by nature it becomes the perfect place to take a stroll or just spend time reading your favorite book. The only thing is that you have to pay for the entrance fee.
Despite visiting in winter, it was easily one of the most beautiful of the gardens I visited in Tokyo. A prime example of a walking garden, the route is easy to follow and get the most of the experience without having to backtrack. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo.
