Garden

Starting in 1695, Rikugien was constructed over 7 years as a Japanese garden of undulating scenery. Designed in the Kaiyushiki style, it features strolling paths around ponds and hills.
It is designated by the Japanese government as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty.
Famous as a place to view Sakura cherry blossoms and autumn foliage, this solemn Japanese garden is beautifully lit up twice a year. At illumination events held from mid-March to early April (a weeping cherry tree), and mid-November to early December (autumn foliage), visitors can feel the changing of the seasons interwoven with nature.

Highlights

  • It is a beautiful Japanese Garden.
  • Every year at the end of March, a highlight is the weeping cherry tree in full bloom.
  • Enjoy authentic matcha green tea and Japanese sweets while gazing at the garden from Fukiage-Chaya tea house.
