The Ninomaru Garden was laid out between 1615-1623 along with the Ninomaru Palace. The garden was transformed into a strolling garden with grass lawns and dry stone gardens in the early 18th century.

The East Ninomaru Garden has more expanse of lawn and was rebuilt after the end of World War II from an old illustration. The reconstruction of East Ninomaru Garden contains two ponds, a tea arbor and a stone drain all based on the originals.
