Hamarikyu, a Japanese garden

(170) 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

Yuki did an excellent job showing up around Meiji shrine and Senso-Ji temple as well as taking us on a day trip to Hakone to view Mt.Fuji (includes many different forms of transportation).

He was also very patient with our almost 5 year old who was holdin...

Yuki was a great guide for my family. He handled the needs of grandparents and teenagers changing things up on the itinerary as needed to accommodate the group. He’s also so knowledgeable. It was great to get all the history, stories and there is no question about Japan that he couldn’t answer. We had a great two days in kamakura and Kyoto and would definitely use Yuki again if we come back.

“ Mount fuji ”

Very Good
1 month ago Traveler: Lourds -   Tour Guide: Yuki

Good. Yuki is considerate (looking for elevators aside from escalators) since we were 2 senior couples finding it difficult to walk fast and not used to long walks inside the complicated railways.
