Create an itinerary including Sankeien Gardens
Stroll the winding paths of Sankeien Gardens, a traditional Japanese-style garden noted for its historic buildings sprinkled among the ponds and bamboo groves. Built in 1908, the gardens once formed part of a private residence belonging to a wealthy silk trader, and his family house still stands overlooking the other significant pagodas and tea rooms. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the flowered trails and undulating streams, which change with the seasons, adorned with cherry blossoms in spring and vibrant leaves in the early fall. The pond comes to life in summer, when the pink lotus blooms. Add Sankeien Gardens to your Yokohama travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Yokohama driving holiday planner.

  • Beautiful park full of history. Has some historic buildings which you can walk through and read about. There are a few restaurants within the park that offer typical Japanese food. I highly recommend the cherry blossom (sakura) ice cream. They offer traditional tea ceremonies.
  • Everyone should visit this place!!! It is the most beautiful place I think I have ever been!!! You can go and relax and look at all the beautiful landscape. Take some money to buy food to feed the fish. You can actually feed the fish from different points around the park. Everyone must visit here when you are in the area!!
