This is my go-to garden for soul-restoring serenity. Kiyosumi Teien Garden doesn’t put on spectacular flower displays, but a walk around the greenery-cloaked lake dishes up perfect Japanese vistas at every turn. Plus, it’s never crowded! Even during the busiest (and hottest) seasons, you feel like you can take your time and breathe.
Hours: 9:00 – 17:00 (last admission 16:30)
Open: Every day except 12/29-1/3
