Why Shin-Edogawa Garden is special ?
Probably the best free Japanese garden in Tokyo, Chinzanso Garden (椿山荘の庭園) is an amazing garden in central Tokyo.
Shin Edogawa Koen was built during the last years of the Tokugawa Era. It was the second residence of the Hosokawa family. The park has a natural hilly landscape built on the slopes leading down to the Edo Gawa. It's beauty lies in its numerous ponds and seasonal gardens. The cherry blossoms in early spring are exceptional.
