Shin-Yokohama Station 

[Sankeien Garden]

Enjoy the invaluable historic buildings and the natural scenery that changes with the seasons.

Sankeien is a Japanese-style garden which is nationally designated as a place of scenic beauty where important buildings have been reconstructed and preserved by the businessman and art collector, Sankei Hara. Seventeen historical buildings are arranged in the garden, which covers an area of more than 170,000㎡. These include "Kakushokaku," a historical farm house with thatched roofs and a total floor area of 950㎡, the "Three-story pagoda of old Tomyoji," the oldest wooden three-story pagoda in Kanto, built in 1457, and "Rinshunkaku," thought to be a holiday retreat of Kishu Tokugawa family. The harmony between the natural scenery that changes with the seasons and the impressive buildings is truly spectacular. There is a tearoom and some eateries within the garden.
