Sankei-en Garden

Travel Guide - Sankei-en Garden

Information

The 175,000 square meters of vast and outstanding Sankei-en Garden was originally home to Tomitaro Hara (or also called Sankei), a silk tycoon during the Meiji (1968 - 1912) and Taisho Periods (1912 - 1926).
There are some historic buildings in the Japanese garden which were moved here from all over the country, such as the three-story pagoda of Old Tomyo-ji Temple in Kyoto, Old Toukei-ji Sanctum in Kamakura, and the Gassho-style Old Yanohara House in Gifu.
You can find a completely different dimension of Yokohama by stepping into this breathtakingly beautiful garden, and don't forget to experience a traditional tea ceremony at the tea shop in Sankei Memorial Hall.
