Get a taste of times-past at this peaceful garden retreat

Located along the Kanda River, Higo-Hosokawa Garden offers you a peek at Japanese traditional gardens and feudal history.

Higo-Hosokawa Garden is a great option when you need to get away from the mayhem of Tokyo. You can take a leisurely stroll around the ponds and enjoy the sound of running water at the waterfall. And while it is nowhere near the size of places like Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, this garden is just as beautiful. Higo-Hosokawa Garden is a colorful sight year-round, with pastel pink sakura (cherry blossoms) in spring and crimson momiji (maple trees) in fall.

For an afternoon of picturesque gardens, visit Higo-Hosokawa Garden along with the nearby Chinzanso Gardens at the Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo.
