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.
Open: Every day except Dec 29 – Jan 3
Hours: 9:00 – 17:00
While you’re in Japan, read a novel set in Tokyo!
“A genuinely gripping crime thriller which wrong-foots and perplexes the reader throughout, drawing us in emotionally . . . Highly recommended.”
