Tokyo Private Garden Tour
What comes to mind when you think of Japan? Is it the skyscrapers and blinking lights of central Tokyo? Or is it the simple beauty of a moss-covered stone lantern beside a red maple tree? What amazes visitors to Japan is that these two very different views can exist side-by-side.
Tokyo is a paradise for Japanese garden fans, but to find these spots of serenity among the hustle and bustle of the city streets is a challenge. Let our tour guide lift you over the language and navigation barrier so you can be free to enjoy a Tokyo private garden tour!
Choose from among the gardens featured on this site for a personalized morning or afternoon tour, or two gardens for a full-day tour. You will be led through a full explanation of the garden’s history and special features by our landscape specialist, while also given the time to explore at your own pace.
Tours are available in English and German language.

Tokyo Imperial Palace Ninomaru Garden (東御苑の二の丸庭園)
Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑)
