A peaceful oasis in the midst of downtown Tokyo, Ninomaru Garden offers a quiet break from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Created in 1968, the garden has a historic significance as well. Walk the narrow, winding paths searching for the remains of castle walls, moats, and gates, while enjoying the sights and scents of seasonal flowers--azaleas in spring, irises in summer, and camellias in winter. The pond with slowly-swimming long-finned koi fish attracts photography enthusiasts, especially during Sakura (cherry blossom) season. If you get thirsty, stop by the tea house.

An amazing garden! It is incredible how you can find such a tranquil and peaceful spot in the middle of Tokyo. You can come for a walk or stay for half a day, this garden is amazing with the pond, fish, walking paths, trees and different colors. There are also toilets and rest areas nearby
