There are 17 historical architectures brought from cities such as Kyoto and Kamakura, the three story pagoda shown in the picture being one of them. Because of these beautiful architectures, you can appreciate Japanese culture casually in Yokohama.

Another perks of Sankeien garden is the beautiful view it offers throughout the year across all four seasons.

In spring, cherry blossoms will bloom from late March until early April. The view from Oike area looking toward the red bridge is a great place to get your camera out!

Once summer comes, you can enjoy the fresh green. The color of the green leaves goes well with the wooden houses located within the garden.
