Rikugien Garden is definitely one of the most beautiful gardens in Tokyo. It was built more than 300 years ago during Edo period, and is a prime example of a typical Edo garden built around that time. The kanji for Rikugien means "six + poems + garden" which is due to the fact that much of the design for the garden is based on scenes from many famous poems.
It is astonishing to imagine how this was once owned by one of the feudal lords as his personal garden as it is truly spectacular with its hills, amazing greenery and pond. It also does not hurt that the garden has a lot of wildlife like turtle, fish, and koi in the pond and all sorts of birds who's calls filter out the sound of the surrounding city almost making the garden into a world of it's own.
The best seasons to visit this park is during the spring and fall when the weather is perfect for longer walks around the beautiful pond. In the spring, you can enjoy the cherry blossoms that surround the bond and make for an amazing stroll. During fall months, the leaves are changing colors making it a must visit spot when in Japan. If there was one spot that would be recommended for a nice escape into nature, this is definitely the spot.
This ANABA is great because it is the best place for a quick getaway in Tokyo. I like coming here to refresh my mind. It is a huge garden with gorgeous trees and flower with Japanese maple trees illuminated in the evening. And the reflection in the pond is incredibly beautiful.
Rikugien garden is perfect for anyone who would like to enjoy the nature. I usually come here with friends and I always have a quality time. Tokyo is not only about concrete jungle!
