What you'll do

We will meet at the garden entrance and I will lead you through several stages of the garden, giving you information on its background, Japanese history, how the garden was developed, what changed over time, compare it to other gardens in Tokyo and Kyoto and to gardens from different time periods. You will learn about the garden elements, true stories and myths which are only known among foreigners. But we will even dig deeper! In the Japanese sense for aesthetics, asymmetry, and explore the Japanese faible for odd numbers. Last but not least I will talk a lot about plants used in Japanese gardens and show you some special species. This tour will being you a good step closer to understand Japanese gardens!

Anika

I am a gardener by heart and came to Japan to deepen my knowledge about Japanese gardens. For 7 years now I am researching Japanese gardens, working in gardens, and writing books about them. It’s time now to share my special knowledge with everyone while exploring the gardens of Tokyo together!

Where you'll be

We will meet at the entrance of the garden, visit each important station and have some tea later in one of the tea houses within the garden.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
