Do you sometimes miss nature, but don’t have the time to go to the mountains and hike? In that case, we recommend visiting Happo-en. Here, you can enjoy afternoon tea while looking at a beautiful Japanese garden.
Happo-en in Tokyo’s Shirokane area is a restaurant and wedding venue. There is also a Japanese stroll garden on the vast grounds, with a pond in the center. This type of garden is called ‘kaiyu-shiki teien’ (which means “garden for strolling around”). Enjoy the beautiful scenery of each season! Some highlights inside the garden include their bonsai trees (some of them are over 500 years old!) and various historic buildings, such as a teahouse.
When you visit the venue, head to their terrace restaurant Thrush Café overlooking the Japanese garden. Ask for a cake set and enjoy the beautiful garden view from the terrace seats!
After a wonderful afternoon tea, it’s time for a walk in the Japanese garden! The garden is open to any guest or visitor of the Happo-en facilities.
If you want to get in touch with nature and get some “nature therapy” in the city, just head to Happo-en. Have a wonderful time!
