Where to find Tokyo's prettiest gardens
Tokyo is famous for its urban landscapes, but its beautiful gardens are an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Japanese gardens are carefully designed to create miniature landscapes which make it easy to forget that you’re in a big city. Walking through these gardens refreshes your senses as you take in the tranquil atmosphere and scenic views. The Japanese love seasonal change, and Tokyo’s gardens are ideal places to experience this. Whenever you visit, Tokyo will be celebrating the season in one of its gardens, perhaps with a cherry blossom viewing party, a festival for irises or chrysanthemums, or a spectacular illumination of foliage. Here are 10 gardens, dotted all over the city, where you can relax surrounded by lush greenery.
