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.

  • 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.
