- The Hamarikyu Gardens are found in the south side of Tokyo, surrounded by a seawater moat. It has a long, varied history - it was initially used by shoguns from the Togukawa family for fishing and hunting; it was then owned by a rich Edo merchant and finally, it found its calling as a public park. The combination of pine trees, pools and ponds and specially constructed boardwalks make the park one of the prettiest natural areas in the city. Be sure to have a cup of green tea at Nakajima no Ochaya, a lovely teahouse that is floats upon one of the tide pools.
