With 10 minutes from Tokyo Station and 25 minutes from Shinjuku Nishiguchi Station on the Hanzomon and Oedo Lines.
Kiyosumi Teien Garden is a fine example of a Japanese strolling-style landscape garden, home to several bird species, fish and turtles, as well as Japanese black pines and seasonal flowers, centered around a large pond. Compare to other Japanese gardens, here is quieter and fewer visitors which is a huge plus for a busy city like Tokyo.
This park is close to the train station and you can stroll through it in an hour. There are plenty of benches in and around the area and vending machine (drinks only) available inside near the entrance.
Central scenic spot is the beautiful layout of artificial pond with multi-colored carps, basking turtles, a variety of birds, ducks and huge slabs of stepping stones, also serves as bridges to and from small islands. There is a lovely rest house "Ryotei" that houses events from time to time and serves Macha and sweets. Wheelchairs are accepted and passable routes are indicated in brochure perhaps can go around the lawns but probably difficult as most have stepping stones steps. Recommended for a worthwhile visit and relaxing time.
