Hama Rikyu (Hama Rikyū), in main Tokyo, is a big, appealing landscaped park. Located next to Tokyo Bay, Hama Rikyu contains seawater lakes that alter with the tides, and a tea house on an island where tourists can appreciate the countryside and relax.
The traditionally designed garden is in sharp comparison to the neighboring Shiodome district's skyscrapers. Over the ages, the garden has served many aims.
Hama Rikyu is a 10-15-minute drive from JR Shimbashi Station or a 5-10-minute drive from Shiodome Station on the Oedo Subway Line and the raised Yurikamome Train.
Hama Rikyu can also be reached by Tokyo Water Bus from Asakusa (35 minutes, 1040 yen one manner including entrance to the park), but notice that the water busses do not end in the reverse direction at Hama Rikyu. Traveling from Hama Rikyu to Asakusa (60 minutes, 800 usd one direction) requires a tiny detour via Hinode Pier.
