Happo-en 八芳園

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.

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.
