Hama-rikyū Onshi-teien information
This beautiful garden, one of Tokyo’s finest, is all that remains of a shōgunal palace that once extended into the area now occupied by Tsukiji Market. The main features are a large duck pond with an island that’s home to a charming tea pavilion, Nakajima no Ochaya , as well as some wonderfully manicured trees (black pine, Japanese apricot, hydrangeas etc), some of which are hundreds of years old.
Besides visiting the park as a side trip from Ginza or Tsukiji, consider travelling by boat to or from Asakusa via the Sumida-gawa (Sumida River).
