Stroll the winding paths of Sankeien Gardens, a traditional Japanese-style garden noted for its historic buildings sprinkled among the ponds and bamboo groves. Built in 1908, the gardens once formed part of a private residence belonging to a wealthy silk trader, and his family house still stands overlooking the other significant pagodas and tea rooms. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the flowered trails and undulating streams, which change with the seasons, adorned with cherry blossoms in spring and vibrant leaves in the early fall. The pond comes to life in summer, when the pink lotus blooms. Add Sankeien Gardens to your Yokohama travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Yokohama driving holiday planner .

In addition, various bonsai and chrysanthemum exhibitions are held, and it is a feeling for those who have a taste from the general public. If you are not interested, it may be only once. I stopped by to cheer for the Yokohama Marathon, so it might be the mouth. In addition, because the access from the station is also bad, it is hard to recommend if you are not interested after all. Fortunately it wasn't crowded on the day of the marathon, so it might be worth a thought to wait for support and change of pace.
