3. HAMA-RIKYU GARDEN/Shogun's garden on riverside



Feel the Edo period with the smell of Tokyo Bay (Tokyo-wan) by the sea!
We recommend going to the teahouse in the center pond to taste Japanese powdered tea (Maccha) and Japanese traditional sweets. The price is \500 including a great view & breeze. Especially at the terrace, it is a relaxing place where time flys!!
Shogun spent time here with his guests or in private here, enjoying wild duck hunt’s and a great view of Mt.Fuji, etc. (Sorry we don’t see Mt.Fuji now because of modern Tokyo buildings.)
The special historical explanation is by “Ubiquitous communicate” a handy guide machine with many languages. It is very useful. Or free guide tour in English is from 11:00 every Sat. & Sun.
