#9 of 254 in Parks in Tokyo
Favored as a wedding venue, Happoen Garden features lush tree species and colorful flowers. Stroll through the garden grounds to admire its carefully-manicured assortment of cherry trees, azaleas, waterfalls, and more, laid out over the foundation of a historic residential complex. Don't miss the garden's bonsai collection, including a pine tree that's over 500 years old. Afterwards, stop by the garden's teahouse to indulge in some treats and refreshments. Keep in mind that some areas may be restricted at times due to weddings and other events taking place. Our Tokyo travel itinerary planner makes visiting Happoen Garden and other Tokyo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
