Hama-rikyu Gardens was built during the Edo Period and was the second residence of the Tokugawa Shogunate. In the Meiji Period and beyond, it became the imperial family's imperial villa and came to be called Hamarikyu.
It was gifted to Tokyo in 1945 and is now open to the public as a metropolitan garden.
The garden has beautiful scenery with skyscrapers in the background. It is also worth seeing the teahouse that stands as if it were floating on the Shioiri-no-Ike Pond and the 300-year-old pine tree.
