This 100-acre botanical garden sits at the top of the hill behind Jindaiji Temple. It started out as a nursery to raise trees for the local area, part of which had been designated as a green zone after the war. Opened to the public in 1961, the garden is today home to 100,000 trees and is divided into 30 blocks by plant species—among which you will find the largest rose garden in Tokyo.
