Hamamatsucho Station 浜松町駅

Multiple perspectives

A thriving business district, countless taverns that come alive after dark, overlooking the Sumida river, centuries-old gardens alongside skyscrapers, and the emblematic Tokyo Tower: Hamamatsucho station serves as a gateway to Tokyo from the bay. 

Green oases amid skyscrapers

 

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, but with the skyscrapers as a backdrop, the gardens of the Hamamatsuchô district offer a break of calm and greenery.

  • The garden of Kyu Shiba Rikyu

Located just a 3-minute walk from Hamamatsuchō station, this former imperial garden of more than 4 hectares is often considered the most beautiful Japanese-style garden in Tokyo. It was also classified as a "site of exceptional beauty" by the government in 1979.

  • The garden of Hama-Rikyu

This promenade garden ( kaiyu-shiki ) dating from the 17th century was the family garden of the Tokugawa shoguns. It is also included in the list of "sites of exceptional beauty" in Japan.

Covering an area of 25 hectares, it is bordered on three sides by a moat filled with seawater.

It has retained its three original ponds, including the Shioiri pond, where an island houses a tea house open to the public.

  • Zojo-ji Temple

Built in 1393 and then moved to its current location in 1598, Zojo-ji Temple was a very important Buddhist site.

Destroyed several times by fires and then by American bombardments during the Second World War, the current buildings date from 1974. Only the main gate, Sangedatsu-mon, erected in 1622, is from the period.

The temple is famous for the Tokugawa mausoleum where 6 shoguns and their close families rest.
