The Rikugien is my favorite Japanese Garden in Tokyo. So much that I actually bought an annual pass so I could go whenever I please.
I love how compact the park is yet, depending upon what you are looking at and where you are, the park looks extremely different. It has 88 spots that have literary significance so make sure you don’t miss the signs that explain each one.
There are different flowers to enjoy during the four seasons like the plum blossom below during winter.
The plum blossoms look similar to cherry blossoms but the petals are rounder and the colors are usually white or a vivid pink.
Take a break and enjoy the view. There are quite a few benches inside the park so I recommend taking some tea and a snack to munch on.
