Hamarikyu, a Japanese garden

by Yuki - Japan Licensed Guide
(188) Reviews

Yesterday, I guided my guests from Philipine to Hamarikyu. We took Sumida river cruise from Asakusa to visit the Japanese garden from the river side.Since it rained in the morning, there were not so many visters.The garden was made by Tokugawa Shogun in Edo period as a summer house to enjoy a duck hunting by eagles.There are many trees including a 300 years old pine tree.It is a really different world in Tokyo.

Its worth visiting if you want to visit a typical Japanese garden.

It is nice place to visit when you go to Asakusa in the mornimg and have some time in the afernoon. The fee is 980 yen for the cruise and the garden. If you are interested but need some help, why not take my tour.My tour to Hamarikyu, a Japanese garden

“ Great tour with Yuki ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Fran -   Tour Guide: Yuki

We had a great tour with Yuki. He is knowledgeable and thoughtful in how he conducted the tour. We were traveling with our 8 year old daughter and 10month old son and Yuki was considerate of their needs as well. We felt confident touring Kyoto and Lake Kawaguchi without having to worry about the language barrier and/or navigating the public transport system and could focus on enjoying the sights.
