It's not a very big garden but every necessary features of a garden can be found there. A small lake spanned with a wooden bridge, a small hill covered with a variety of bonsai and flowers, a small teahouse next to a pebble-paved path creates a picturesque garden.

The peaceful atmosphere of the garden makes tourists temporarily forget about the noisy city just right outside the garden.

The end of November is best for visiting

The most appropriate time to visit Rikugien Garden should be from the end of November to the beginning of December when tourists can view the passionate color of the foliage fall. The nicest point to take a panoramic photo of the garden is certainly on the hill where tourists can reach to by a staircase.
