Rikugien was built around 1700 for the Tokugawa Tsunayoshi who was the 5th Tokugawa Shogun. It is a good example of an Edo Period strolling garden and it features a large central pond surrounded by manmade hills and forested areas, all connected by a network of trails.
The place is most known for its weeping cherry trees. There is a path for wheelchair users.
