Kyu Iwasaki-tei Teien, Taito

4.2
#22 of 523 in Historic Sites in Tokyo
Garden Historic Site
Observe unique combinations of Western-styled architecture and picturesque Japanese gardens at Kyu Iwasaki-tei Teien. 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. Use our Tokyo itinerary maker to visit Kyu Iwasaki-tei Teien on your trip to Tokyo, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • If enough time, can come here and experience it. House of the Mitsubishi Zaibatsu, European style buildings, outside individuals like, does not have a special place, there may not be photographed. Is a reflected Japan Asia into Europe's historic testimony.

  • Ueno of old mansion located near the pond. Currently, the exterior of the building under construction. There is Western-style and Japanese-style house and billiard room. Inside the House is a luxurious and delicate, filled with international atmosphere. Or tired just by such Western-style and Japanese-style house of Japan-style room, you relax a bit. Billiard room in the garden's spacious atmosphere something like Westerns come. Good to feel the splendor of the Meiji era.

  • Beautiful architecture, but there's an admission fee, and they don't allow you to take photos inside the building.
  • Antique old building which built in the ancient Japan in 18xx, art combine western and Japanese. Definitely worth to go in if u like architecture, building and history. The place close at 5pm, but last entrance will be at 4.30pm.
  • I attended a live classical music concert in the garden, the background was the main building, such a beautiful experience.
  • I loved going here. The building's architecture is an amazing thing to see in the middle of Ueno. One moment it feels like you're walking through a luxurious plantation house in the American south, and the next moment you're in the most exquisite traditional Japanese room.
  • Great historical asset used to be owned by Iwasaki clan, but now Tokyo government.

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.
