As an aficionado of Japanese gardens, Sankeien is rather a hodge-podge of garden styles, though pleasant enough if you find yourself in Yokohama. It has to be said, however, that nothing in Tokyo or Yokohama comes even close to the sublime examples found in Kyoto....

Nice garden with beautiful seceneries and the buildings are from Kyoto, so it does have an ancient feel. There's alot of tea houses to see and is gooid place to walk in the quiet mornings in spring when the air is cool.
