Kiyosumi Gardens 清澄庭園

3-3-9 Kiyosumi, Koto City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

Stone-hopping, bird watching and flower viewing

Kiyosumi Gardens is a fine example of a Japanese strolling-style landscape garden, home to several bird species, fish and turtles, as well as Japanese black pines and seasonal flowers, centered around a large pond. The garden is 10 minutes from Tokyo Station and 25 minutes from Shinjuku Nishiguchi Station on the Hanzomon and Oedo Lines. The nearest station to Kiyosumi-Shirakawa is just minutes away on foot.

Tips

  • Walking across the stepping-stone paths to see the fish and turtles
  • The azaleas covering the hill at the south end of the garden in May

The most famous aspect of the garden, completed during the Meiji era (1868-1912), are the many valuable landscape stones placed throughout the grounds, some of them acquired from across Japan. Hovering over the pond is a ryotei, a gathering place, which resembles a teahouse and adds to the traditional feel of the garden.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo and the Fukagawa Edo Museum are both within walking distance of Kiyosumi Gardens. It's worth combining these with a visit to the gardens.
