Ninomaru Garden


Ninomaru Garden

Japanese garden teeming with nature — in the midst of Tokyo. Stroll the garden and enjoy the sight of seasonal flowers and wild birds.

Ninomaru Garden is a five-minute walk from the C13a Exit of Otemachi Station on both the Tokyo Metro and Toei lines. The garden was created in 1968 based on a plan drawn up during the reign of ninth shogun Tokugawa Ieshige. Stretching out before your eyes is a lush Japanese garden free from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Enjoy the essence of the season such as azaleas in spring, irises in early summer and camellias in winter along with the wild birds and insects drawn by the flowers. Ninomaru Garden is an oasis in the city, a place to enjoy some relaxing moments. Access through the three East Garden gates: Ote-mon, Hirakawa-mon and Kitahanabashi-mon. Opening hours depend on the season, so be sure to check before going.
