Hama-Rikyu Garden was originally a garden of Tokugawa Shogun family's villa.
The garden is a typical Daimyo (feudal lord) garden of the Edo era (1603 – 1868) and is famous for its Shioiri-no-Ike pond.
The pond is designed to feature a landscape that changes along with the ebb and low of the tides.
It is the only tidewater pond still remain in Tokyo.
There is a teahouse on the small island in the pond where you can enjoy Macha green tea.
In addition, you can freely enjoy traditional Japanese tea ceremony in Tokyo Grand Tea Ceremony held in October.
The garden also has a boarding point for Water Bus, which takes you to Asakusa and Odaiba from here.
