General information:
Coming out of the airplane after an eleven hour flight, this was the first thing we saw in Tokyo, we were very impressed by its beauty and tranquility. The Hamarikyu is a large landscape garden, situated at the Tokyo Bay. The ponds get their water from the sea and the water level changes with the tides. One of the main attractions is the teahouse, where visitors can drink some tea and enjoy the beautiful landscape. In the background one sees the skyscrapers of modern Tokyo. The garden was built during the Edo Period (1603-1867) and had several purposes varying from duck hunting grounds to imperial palace before opening for the public. One have to pay a small fee for this garden an English audio guide is free available.
