Hama-rikyu Gardens

The Hama-rikyu Gardens is a typical example of the gardens of the Edo era. It has the “Shioiri-no-Ike” pond which takes seawater from Tokyo Bay and you can enjoy the change of scenery with the rise and fall of the tide. In addition, this garden is famous for the “Kamoba” which are ponds for duck hunting. It went through history until today first as gardens of the Kofu Domain, then a sea side villa of the Shogunate and finally as an imperial villa administrated by the Imperial Household Agency. In The Hama-rikyu Gardens, a variety of plants and flowers including a peony garden delight the visitors’ eyes by the seasons. People with disabilities and the attendees can enjoy it for free by showing their identification booklet for the disabled. It also offers a guided tour in English for free in the morning of Saturdays and Mondays. (Please refer to the HP)
