Garden
Kansenen Park is a Japanese garden located in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It covers an area of about 14,000 square metres.This small park was previously the residence of the Shimizu family, one of Tokugawa Gosankyō, and one of the most prominent families of the Edo era. After the Meiji Restoration in 1867, it was transferred to Marquis Souma.The name Kansen-en (literally "sweet spring garden") derives from the fact that the spring water in the garden was sweet and suitable for tea. Since Kansen-en was built during the Edo period, its style is typically Edo. There is a gourd-shaped pond, called Yamabuki-no-ido (meaning "well of the Japanese roses"), in the middle of the garden, which is surrounded by flowering shrubs. At the south end of the park is Mishima-Yama mountain. Mizu-Inari Shrine is also located on the site.The park is located approximately 10 minutes' walk from Waseda Station, and it is open from 07:00 until 19:00 (until 17:00 from November to February).

  • 园区的门古风犹存,柴菲草庐,园内静雅别致,虽值冬曰一月时节,草本凋零,亦仍显见时节的苍凉之妙,如若春归之时,入园处垂柳可想见的繁茂吧。公园处于高楼之后,隔断了穿梭的车流噪音,冬曰下的寒鸦啼叫,更显鸟鸣山名幽。推荐四时各去次,风光不同醉。
  • It is like a garden in a quiet, relaxing Park. Autumn 🍁 is good. Have a break on a bench in toilet 🚻 is safe. It is now want to try drinking tea with no. No parking, admission free.
