The place is very peaceful. One of the most quiet places in Tokyo. The place is filled with green. Sometimes there are people taking their wedding pictures there. Very majestic.

This is a very well presented and maintained garden area with a lovely pool as a central attraction. Banzai plants dating back hundreds of years are on display and the garden layout is outstanding. The superb gardens make it a very attractive place for weddings....More

We were taken here on the recommendation of our volunteer guide, Ihara. Tranquil setting, with large pond full of colourful carp, and good examples of Bonai trees, some of which were over 500 years old!

Had time to spare between meetings & came here out of curiosity. Well sign posted from station. Traditional, small, quaint & quiet. Could imagine a nice small garden party here, or in its banquet hall.

This is a very beautiful garden. It's the most beautiful garden I have ever seen. I really recommend visiting it. Best is to go there in November / December when it's autumn colours.

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
