Take a peaceful stroll around the Japanese and English landscaping at Former Fukukawa Gardens, and stop in the Western-style country house designed by English architect by Josiah Conder. Wander away from the house through the Western gardens, observing rose gardens and neatly trimmed, decorative hedgerows. Eventually you'll get to the Japanese garden, with its unusual trees, central pond, and waterfall. Don't miss the art museum located in the house, and wear comfortable shoes for your trip, as some of the pathways are cobbled.

  • Hi I just wanted to correct misspelled word. Please change to Furukawa. Thanks! I went to high school near by and we used to draw and paint in the garden during the class. Back in the late ‘70s it was...  more »
  • This aim was not that the close was for stopped by. I was lucky and was during the Rose Festival. On it, you can park at 150 yen. On weekdays could only rose and our admission visitors plenty of... Like taking photos is difficult and the laughs. Is no booking into hotel offers coffee shop seemed too wait is because it was without tour. Designed by Josiah Conder was examined later because a beautiful European-style building, he said. It is now one of the few works so priceless. I think it's one of the few places we enjoy the atmosphere like this in Japan.

  • To walk by the staff just staff. Moderate events, so come in several times. It is sufficient if we stay 30 minutes. It is recommended to walk from komagome station if a meal taken in the.

  • I came when off season so it wasn't crowded and felt very peaceful. The rose has not bloomed but it was still beautiful. I plan to come again during spring. The entrance fee is very cheap too (¥150). Not stroller friendly, so if you bring baby better use baby carrier.
  • One of the most interesting parks in Tokyo and a must-visit for tourists - it's also very popular with locals for the Western-style rose garden and house. Watch out for the massive spiders in the trees! The old carriageway that runs up the side of the house is fascinating.
  • I live like 10min walk from this garden. This garden is amazing. So relaxing & clean. I love it. Thank you!
  • Beautiful Western style house with extensive rose gardens and walking trails. The house has a restaurant inside and an additional fee to explore. Check the best time of year to go to see the roses in bloom. This house is featured in the anime and visual novel "Umi neko: When they cry". They sell rose jam, try it out!
  • Its very cheap for its beauty. I had visited during rose blooming season, but I think it is worth a visit even off-season. It is bit out of the way, but can be reached using Yamanote and some walking. I wish that artificial streams and waterfalls were flowing, instead of being dry, but it was fine even without them. Note: there is no english guide nor pamphlet.
