► Kiyosumi Garden is my absolute favorite japanese style garden in greater Tokyo area. It centers around a small lake, on which you can walk around from one small "island" to the next, via small bridges, stonepaths, etc. Kiyosumi is near perfect in terms of displaying all the elements used in traditional Japanese garden style; bonzai, water, rocks, wood, bridges and ofcourse, a teahouse - making this garden a "must-go" if in Tokyo.
Kiyosumi Garden is located approx. 25 minutes from Shinjuku station by Oedo Subway Line. - Enjoy!
