  • Beautiful path, many small bridges,, beside lake, Nothing showy-just a well manicured mature garden in the middle of a city. It had numerous places to sit and enjoy the quiet. It had the only trash...

  • Right next to Konagome station. Entrance fee is 300 Yen and the park is a nice stroll. Some nice Autumn foliage but not overly spectacular. Good spot for a stroll away from the hustle and bustle.

  • Weather was a bit cloudy today but the landscape is just as beautiful. Would visit again in autumn to see the leaves turn colour. It's a small garden if being compared to Shinjuku Gyoen. There's a also a cozy looking tea shop for tea (matcha) lovers.
  • A beautiful garden located near Komagome Station. It can also be reached by Sugamo Station but is a good 10 -15 minute walk. The entrance is located at the south east corner. Gorgeous landscape with well maintained and manicured trees and plants. I would love to go back in Autumn and Spring to see the different colors. There is a place to buy souvenirs and a few food items. There is also a small tea shop where you can enjoy a cup of matcha while taking in all the beauty.
