Hamarikyu, a Japanese garden

by Yuki - Japan Licensed Guide
(143) 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 is knowledgeable and informative. Given a rainy day, he was very flexible in changing our plans and making alternate arrangements to meet our needs. He gave us a great day in Hakone, even if we couldn't see Mt. Fuji... including arranging for a private onsen. He even went out of his way to accompany us to a hard-to-find restaurant.

Wen we were hit by a heavy rain, Yuki readjusted our schedule so that we were out of the weather while travelling to our next destination, then picked up our original route once the rain stopped. It was important that I be at a private residence by a specific time, and he made that happen right on schedule. Unlike some guides I've had, he did not feel the need to chat incessantly. I liked that. I ...

Yuki has mastered the art of making a first time tourist feel Welcomed and Comfortable in many parts of Japan. We went to the Tsukiji fish market which could have been a crowded maze without the knowledge and skill of Yuki. He taught us about the fish, the skill of the butchers and then we went to a local restaurant where we felt like family and ate the best sushi we ever had. The second tour was...

I would recommend Yuki-san to anyone. He was great even though we were late. With a few hours, we covered Senso-Ji Temple in Asakusa and Edo Castle with a Japanese Garden. He was very flexible to adjust to our schedule. We skipped lunch until 3pm. Ending tour with 15 minutes lunch. He kept track of the time and our train back to the airport. I think he will be a great person to show you around To...
