Volunteers on hand to explain the seasonal plants featured in these large botanical gardens. Huge area, worth a visit to clear the lungs and enjoy nature. Pair with a visit to Jindai-Jill temple nearby.

A must-see for all plant and gardening lovers. The largest botanical park in the Tokyo area, it boasts one of the loveliest rose gardens in Japan (selected by the World Federation of Rose Societies) with roses blooming in spring and autumn, a large lawn for family picnicking (surrounding by cherry blossoms in spring), a large greenhouse (recently renovated) of tropical...

Went there the last weekend, to see azalea which is usually OK until the first week of May. Maybe due to the global warming, it was absolutely too late. Instead, some roses were blooming here and there. Feel like it will be beautiful in a week or so, considering this sudden warm weather.

The park is divided up into different themed areas, various woodland examples (maple, bamboo, roses, azaleas etc) plus open areas make this a good destination at any time of the year. Large greenhouse, too.

This botanical garden is a wonderful green space in suburban Tokyo with ponds, paths, open spaces and woodlands. It also has various types of flowers in their season. The greenhouses are currently being rebuilt, but you can enjoy wandering through the rest of the garden, with a stop for ice cream or a drink when you feel like it. Easiest... More

Located in the Jindaiji area, this place is a green oasis of the surrounding neighborhoods. What differentiate this place from other nearby parks: 1). It costs 500 yen to get in (2,500 yen for 12 months entry pass which is highly recommended if you live closeby), and because of this, you don't see noisy kids running around (and there are... More

This Botanical Park is approx 45 min drive from Tokyo, however, it is so peaceful and not crowded out with tourists, full of local who are enjoying this beautiful surrounding. The cherry blossom was just amazing, and the colour awesome. You need at least a couple of hours here, but it so easy to follow the map around. The displays... More
