Sankeien Gardens, Naka

4.5
Stroll the winding paths of Sankeien Gardens, a traditional Japanese-style garden noted for its historic buildings sprinkled among the ponds and bamboo groves. Built in 1908, the gardens once formed part of a private residence belonging to a wealthy silk trader, and his family house still stands overlooking the other significant pagodas and tea rooms. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the flowered trails and undulating streams, which change with the seasons, adorned with cherry blossoms in spring and vibrant leaves in the early fall. The pond comes to life in summer, when the pink lotus blooms. Add Sankeien Gardens to your Yokohama travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Yokohama driving holiday planner .

  • I visited at the time of cherry blossoms. A former millionaire relocated a wonderful building in Japan and entertained dignitaries. Nowadays, you can experience the beauty of the four seasons.

  • The flowering of lotus flowers seems to be in full bloom around 7 a.m. and is starting at 6 am on Saturdays and Sundays only at this time of year. The lotus full of the pond was in full bloom with potspots. It wasn't like it was blooming.
