Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens, Taito

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Observe unique combinations of Western-styled architecture and picturesque Japanese gardens at Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens. Constructed by the founder of Mitsubishi's son, the property was seized after World War II; since then, it has lost most of its buildings, and now stands at half its original size. Don't let this put you off, however: the remaining historical structures, unusual in their composition, make the visit worthwhile. Inspect a heady combination of 17th-century Jacobean design and Islamic Renaissance patterns in the main house--a building also circumnavigated by a veranda, and furnished with a colonnade straight out of Appalachian America. Pause for some green tea, served inside the house, and take in your surroundings.

  • As the eldest son of founder Yataro Iwasaki laid the Mitsubishi Zaibatsu, as a residence of the third President of Mitsubishi Hisaya structure that built and is overwhelmed by its vast grounds. Currently on the site of the original told me with only 3 minutes, Matabi made. Feel the air passage with sumptuous Western style monuments such as Nijo castle. If you make it just means there is on Earth had much wealth, and be amazed.

  • Chiyoda line Island Station No.1 exit left into left lane first, walk on the road and a small hill on the left is our garden. From yushima station 3 minutes walk a little. From Ueno Station hirokoji exit if you walk about 10 minutes. 17 / March, exterior construction. Josiah Condor design house can't be covered and its stunning appearance, had a Japanese-style house and billiard Hall enjoys to enhance that.

  • Iwasaki-Tei accessible to the adjacent Office Building Museum is recommended. Exhibits change every few months, both high-quality content. Answer surveys, free admission and get catalogues.
