Hama-rikyu Gardens Sumida River Reviews
Relaxing escape from the urban jungle Jul 13, 2000
The Hama-rikyu Gardens is a public park and was opened on april 1st 1946. It's location is directly at the Sumida River and the Tsukiji River. Entrance price was 300 yen (around 3 euro or around 4 US dollars
When I was there with the tourgroup, we had some time to spend inside the park, before we were boarding a boat for a cruise on the river. And we were the only people in the park. How far we looked, we didn't saw anyone else.
It did however, provided some relaxation and calmness compared to the busy streets in Tokyo. There were paths for walking around the Shioiri-no-ike Pond.
Yoyogi Park is more lively, but if you prefer peace & quiet, then this is a park worth for a visit.
