Gotenyama is a hilly area in Shinagawa and served as the former site of Tokugawa Ieyasu's retreat palace. Gotenyama Garden is a Japanese garden that contains the remnants of Gotenyama, once a famous place for viewing cherry blossoms in the Edo period. Apart from locals, this quiet spot is almost unknown by others and thus is rarely visited. Here the main attraction is the rich nature amidst urban surroundings.. You can enjoy plums and cherry blossoms in spring, hydrangea and pear flowers in early summer, autumn leaves of maples and ginkgo trees in autumn. On the spacious and quiet site there is an unusual tea room Ujian designed by architect Arata Isozaki.
