Enjoy autumn foliage at the typical Daimyo Garden of the Edo period

The Edo Period pond “Shioiri no ike” was a tidal pond that depended on the intake of seawater from Edo Bay. It had two duck hunting sites within the grounds. Hama-rikyu Garden is a representative Daimyo Garden in the Edo period, and it is designated a famous site as well as a site with high historical significance.

Also Kyu-Shiba-rikyu Gardens, Kiyosumi Gardens and Kyu-Yasuda Gardens were once a style of “Shioiri no ike”. Now, the seawater pond is only in Hama-rikyu gardens in Tokyo. Saltwater fish such as black mullet, sea bass, gobies and eels live in the pond, and you can see the seagulls flying above the pond.

In the garden where the atmosphere of the Edo period remains, the leaves of the trees start to turn red in mid-November. You can enjoy colorful autumn foliage such as Japanese maple, wax tree and trident maple around the pond.
