Yasaka Garden Center

photogarden kelly odonnellI call this place “mini Joyful Honda.” It’s a great garden and home improvement center that is even closer to base than Joyful Honda. I go here if I just need a few things and don’t want the hassle of the Joyful Honda parking and that whole overwhelming experience. This place is called Yasaka and it has a great garden center with lots of plants and flowers. They sell potting soil and pots and anything you would need for your summer garden. They even sell some outdoor furniture, grills, etc…pretty much anything you would find at a small home improvement store. You would never find it from the main road since it’s pretty hidden on a small side street. My Japanese friend showed me one day.

You will see a blue P “parking” sign on the left. Take that left turn and then an immediate right onto a very narrow (blind spot with mirror) road and it is right there. There is ample free parking right across the street. GPS:  35.747497,139.324443.  – Kelly O’Donnell, May 2013.

  1. Wow, this place is great. They have good prices on plants. I bought some cherry tomato plants for 100 yen. I was surprised by the selection of household items too. Open 9am-8pm. When driving down from Seiyu looking for the 4th stoplight, it says “Home Center” and has a big blue P where you should turn left. It is really easy to find once you know it exits.

  2. They also have furniture upstairs – beds, tables, couches, desks, etc. decent selection considering.
