Serene gardens and traditional tea ceremonies

Happo-en's traditional gardens and Edo-period (1603–1867) architecture boast all the beauty of more famous Tokyo sites such as Meiji Jingu, with fewer crowds. The well-manicured grounds are home to centuries-old bonsai trees, a koi pond, and cherry trees and fall foliage that make for some of the best seasonal views in the city.

The garden and surrounding facilities are believed to be a residence of 17th century samurai Tadataka Okubo, a close confidante of shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa. Three centuries later, the facility is a popular spot for weddings and banquets, and overseas visitors are welcome to take part in the traditional tea ceremonies offered inside.
