Kyu Iwasaki-tei Teien, Taito
(4.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It's designated historic buildings has its value. Both Western-style and Japanese-style house beautiful. Nice garden. The sky who is technology which Josiah Condor design that is? I liked the design and craftsmanship to devise stones and leather, wood and paper. Current site's say 1/3 of the original, destroyed a significant portion of Japan at that time Japan cultural neglect is regrettable. Roof slate is real stone. Video can be seen at the hotel (about 10 minutes) is not to be missed. The moment I saw the Western reminded me of Hotel California Eagles jacket.

  • Close at the back of the Ueno Grace Park. It is the residence of the founder know Mitsubishi Zaibatsu, Iwasaki. Mansion maze-like (designated in each room fireplaces and toilets! Only but worth a look is) a Japanese-style house next to the shoes off and walk around the hotel's large rich feel. Switzerland-connected by a wide Lawn Garden and splendid large tree, underground pool hall, entrance fee 400 Yen worth is. 11/10 is before demolition of the Western half by the end of March next year. Visit now if last chance looked at the whole picture (view)!

  • Yesterday, I went for the first time. From the middle of this year, shot of the Interior of the building was accepted on weekdays only. However, I think Western-style appearance still haunts. Exotic Western style and appearance seems like Islam and also may appeal. As we stand ago this and abroad. Garden from the balcony on the second floor are spacious, grass green and chest thumping in landscape. 12/29-1/1 is closed. Of the metropolitan, 5/4 green, 10/1, free admission day.
