A garden with a hundred flowers in the middle of Tokyo?!
What I always tell people when they ask where should they go to see autumn foliage in Tokyo without encounter many people is to find a garden. Located in the residential area around Higashi Mukojima station, Mukojima-Hyakkaen Garden is known for having an abundance in species. The name probably originated from the meaning “Garden where a hundred flowers bloom throughout four seasons”.
The garden is one of the "strange" Japanese gardens I have ever been to. Flowers and plants mentioned in classic Chinese and Japanese works of literature and poetry were collected and grown in the area, providing locals a place to enjoy the beauty of nature all year round. That means the garden has a natural-style landscape, where you can see pampas grasses planted next to a bamboo grove! Red maple, pink plum flowers, purple bush clovers, yellow patrinia, there are so many viewpoints you can enjoy in this small garden.
🗓 Best season to visit: In spring/summer when you can do flower hunting, or in autumn, when the leaves change color.
💰 You will have to pay a small entrance fee of ¥150 to get into the garden
‼️Make sure to have insect repellent with you since it's lush green inside!
🍞Drop by bakery Boulangerie Trois located in front of the main entrance. They have
wonderful bread for your quick snack!
📍 3-18-3 Higashi-Mukojima, Sumida City, Tokyo
