        Rikugien, a waka poetry garden in Tokyo, Japan

        Rikugien, a waka poetry garden in Tokyo, Japan

        One of the most beautiful gardens in Tokyo, the Rikugi-en offers a quiet resting and strolling place in the hectic Tokyo life. It is situated in the quiet neighborhood of Komagome and Sugamo (Bunkyo ward), that are also worth a visit.

        The garden is a strolling garden of the Edo period (1603-1868). Samurai Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu built the garden with the permission of the shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi between 1695 and 1702. Originally, 88 famous views from Japanese and Chinese landscape have been imitated in miniature form in this garden, however, only 18 remain today. The garden's name translates literally Six Rules Garden and refers to the six basic rules of Waka poetry. Waka translates as “Japanese Poem”, and has its roots in the Heian period (794-1185).

        Rikugi-en is one of Tokyo's finest gardens and offers the visitor an ever changing landscape. Although its square footage is considerable, the garden feels closed and intimate. We recommend enjoying the view over the garden while having a bowl of green matcha tea in the tea house.
