Located in the Shiodome district these beautiful gardens, with its 25 hectares, are a retreat from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Layout

Hama-rikyu is a large skewed square (in north-south terms, a diamond). The south-eastern side flanks the Sumida River, where the river meets Tokyo Bay. Its 25 hectares (62 acres) contain a lot to wander through.

To enter the garden, whether at its north-west Naka-no-gomon ("Inner Gate") or its main northern Otemon ("Main Gate"), you cross a bridge over the moat that runs along its NE and SE sides. (If you have baggage, you can leave it at the Garden Administration Office / Visitor Center at the Otemon Gate.)

The first thing you will see upon entering the Otemon gate is the 300 year pine on your left. This sprawling tree, said to have been planted by Shogun Ienobu when he renovated the gardens, is propped up on frames and meticulously tended to.
