    Hama Rikyu Gardens




Located southeast of the Shiodome complex, the Hama Rikyu Gardens are an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The history of the park goes back to 1654, during the reign of the Tokugawa Shogun.

Admission is 300 yen.

To access the Hamarikyu Gardens from the Shiodome Park Hotel, exit on level 1, look for steps to your right as you exit the building. Walking up the steps, veer left, towards the funky clock (TV Station). Now, walk away from the clock, once you see it, and veer towards the Conrad Hotel. Continue on the walkway down to the sidewalk and go under the Tokyo Expressway. You should see the entrance to the park off of Shin-Ohashi Dori.
