4.3/5 based on 160+ 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.
