Garden Historic Site
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.

  • I did not know was such a lovely garden in the Kita ward of Tokyo. Mansion on the Hill is a stone, felt products. Roses also bloomed flickering.

  • Since last fall after watching rose in the autumn to spring roses and get off at JR Yamanote Line "komagome" and headed out on foot. Spring Roses of Chu King watching autumn roses in the garden of the old Furukawa, and was impressed to see that which I visited was. From the East exit of shopping, was a 15-minute walk. In the rose garden outside Japan garden there was appreciated only the spring roses. Both young and old have visited on a weekday afternoon, was unexpected and many people have visited. And sale of spring roses. There seems to be liberated and free tours of the old Furukawa homes.

  • 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.
  • Nice garden in tokyo district, not a huge garden and not too crowded. Would love to visit it during Autumn.
  • Spacious garden/park for Japan - with a rose garden and traditional Japanese garden section with pond. Some unusual stone lanterns dotted around the gardens.
  • Really Love this place because I like roses so much. Moreover, you can see Colour changing leaves for autumn season here. :)
  • Small park near Komagome station. Might be worth a visit after walking through Shimofuri Shotengai for some nice down time.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
