Kyu Iwasaki-tei Teien, Taito

(4.3/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • 2/4 visit is roof repair in the whole is not visible. By I visited in Aki city, Kochi Prefecture, Kyu-Iwasaki House at the end of January. Looks great in the Interior and it is slow you want to visit.

  • During the week it was we who visited less spacious. Nice garden is good. It is recommended to go on sunny days overcast with rain.

  • 這是特意穿和服要到的地點,心想應該會很美,誰不知原來距離上野公園還有10分鐘的路程,而且是要收費的,很悲哀的是建築物正在翻新外牆,有一半的外牆都架著支柱,只能說不幸,但如果完整的舊岩崎府邸庭園應該是值得一看的,而且有個大草地可供拍照。
