After the Second World War it became a National Garden and open to the Public. Originally a residence of the Naitō family in the Edo period dating back to the 1700’s.
A fantastic 144 acre garden and only a 500 yen entrance fee. A place for us to take time out and enjoy the peace.
Love the different distinct designs, Formal French Style, English Landscape and of course Japanese Traditional Garden with a Tea House.
Too early in the season to see the Cherry Blossoms. However is worth the two hours to revive and reconnect with nature. Even though surrounded by skyscrapers, this is a little piece of heaven.
