Hamarikyu Gardens is a 250,165-square-meter landscaped garden built on the site of a 17th-century game reserve owned by the Tokugawa family and located adjacent to Tokyo Bay. The garden features a variety of native flora and fauna, including fields of gorgeous wildflowers, depending upon the season, and Japanese matsu pine trees, all set against the fascinating architectural backdrop of the Shiodome office complex skyline. There is also a traditional Japanese teahouse situated next to a large pond, which casts stunning reflections of the garden and the Tokyo skyline. Open year-round 9am-5pm, admission is 300 yen (150 yen for visitors 65 and older, free for children up to elementary-school age).
