Kyu Furukawa Garden

This garden surrounds a majestic stone mansion, and is typical of the Meiji Era, right after Japan opened to the West. The grounds below the house are still an age-old Japanese garden with a pond, stone lanterns, and tea house. But the grounds surrounding the mansion are European-style rose gardens.

Gently groomed paths guide visitors over the bridges and around the pond to view the classic Japanese garden…
…planted to highlight the changing of the seasons
But as the Japanese garden’s azaleas peek over the top of the hill, the beds of roses begin
Summertime in the formal Kyu-Furukawa rose garden evokes stately grounds half a world away
