The gardens

Mukojima-Hyakkaen Gardens were designed by some of the most elite culture aficionados during the Bunka-Bunsei era (1804-1830) as a place to appreciate beautiful flowers.
It first opened with 360 plum trees, but now boasts an even wider collection of plants that bloom across the seasons, like bush clover, susuki grass, and other flora known from poetry, the Manyoshu and similar Japanese and Chinese classics. The bush clover tunnel is especially popular, drawing visitors at the end of September.
You’ll even find Fukurokuju, one of the 7 luck gods kept here, which draws visitors at the beginning of the new year for the pilgrimage of the Seven Lucky Gods of Sumida River.
As of 1978, the gardens have been designated by the national government as a famous site of historical significance under terms of the Cultural Assets Preservation law.
