We are all caught up in the web of our daily hectic lives & Koishikawa Botanical Garden (not to be confused with the Koishikawa Korakuen Garden adjacent to Tokyo Dome, in Korakoen ), offers the ideal surroundings to relax & unwind those frazzled nerves. The tranquil natural forest & landscaped gardens, transport you far from the hustle & bustle of the city.

It is a little off the beaten track from usual tourist attractions. A 15 minute walk from Myogadani station on the Marunouchi subway line or 10 minutes from Hakusan station on the Mita subway line. But believe me, the serene atmosphere you experience, is definitely worth the trek.

The website below gives a brief outline about the garden, it’s hours & admission fees. (¥400 for adults over 13 and ¥130 for children over 6 ).
