Tokyo, 11th May, 2019
We truly experienced the seamless blend of nature and city in Tokyo when visiting the Hamarikyu Garden. Located close to the Tokyo bay and in walking distance from the Tsujki Fish Market this urban park is a peaceful oasis for a short walk in nature. The artfully designed park has a pond and tea house at the center and a pleasant garden with landscaped trees and bushes. Small pine trees line the subtly fenced path, small bridges cross the little streams running through the park and all roads seam to lead to the pond in the middle where a tea house invites guests to have a cup of matcha and a traditional Japanese rice flour pastry.
