The Garden is beautiful. The waterfall provides a nice background for pictures. If you're staying at The New Otani Hotel you will visit the Garden more than once. It really is a nice place to walk around and and enjoy the grounds and the waterfall.

It's a real pretty oriental garden on the grounds of an old school hotel popular with businessmen from the new world. A nice break from the bustle.

I've stayed at the Hotel New Otani many times, but every time I come to this hotel, I enjoy the beautiful Japanese Garden in this hotel, which was the residence of samurai lord Katō Kiyomasa 400 years ago and then that of Ii Clan. It's nice to have a breakfast in a restaurant overlooking this garden. Now there are many... More

It really is a great little garden! Second time here, so worried that I has too good memories but it was really nice this time to. Nice to stroll around on the nice little paths, look at the fish, look at the waterfall. If you have money to spare - dinner is 18000 plus taxes - I can recommend to... More

If you want to treat yourself well when you are in Tokyo, stay at the New Otani. Enjoy the gardens, the ponds, the tea ceremony, the service and the Japanese welcome.

The hotel is kind of old but it is yet really really clean, the rooms are very big, toilets are traditional Japanese, service at the lobby and bellboys is awesome! Ohh and location is great, very nice and safe streets and 5 minutes walking from metro station. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This beautiful oasis was just an elevator away from our room. My children loved walking through it. It was unbelievable that we could find a place like this in a busy city like Tokyo.

This garden, despite being sandwiched between the hotel and a busy road, is an oasis of calm.Beautifully kept, with a variety of paths through the gardens and around the water. There's even a couple of well hidden paths that add to the serene atmosphere. The waterfall and large number of very large koi carp add to the atmosphere. There is... More

While this garden is in a very busy part of Tokyo, there were few people walking through it the three times we visited. Stayed at the New Otani, and entered the garden through the hotel. Access to the garden was hard to find if we were not looking. Well maintained and beautiful. Many wedding parties taking pictures and kimono clad... More
