Hamarikyu Garden

Hama Rikyu Gardens is a representative feudal lord's garden of the Edo period. It is the only garden in Tokyo that draws water from the sea. During the Edo period, it was a hawk hunting ground for the Tokugawa shoguns. Visitors can enjoy seasonal flowers and trees throughout the year, such as rape blossoms and cherry blossoms in spring, and cosmos and autumn leaves in fall.
There is also a teahouse in the middle of the pond, where visitors can experience Japanese sweets and powdered green tea.
The rape blossoms are recommended in spring. They are beautiful, spreading all over the area like a yellow carpet.
Cherry blossoms can also be enjoyed, although not in large numbers.
The best time to see the yellow-bellied cosmos is from mid to late October. Photo taken October 27, 2023.
The ginkgo trees at the ruins of Enryokan were also at their best.
