Rikugien Gardens is a classic example of an Edo period feudal lord's garden. Built by Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu, secretariat member to the fifth Tokugawa shogun (general) Tsunayoshi, the garden's various natural elements are arranged to reflect famous scenes from waka poetry. The government declared the garden a Special Place of Scenic Beauty in 1953.

Famous in Tokyo for its stunning displays of autumn foliage, Rikugien hosts a special illumination event every year. The contrast of the leaves against the dark night sky makes their colors seem even more vibrant than in the daytime. You definitely won't want to miss this side of the gardens.

As a safety precaution, some parts of the garden are closed to visitors after 16:30.
