    This is a traditional garden located in the Chuo City of Tokyo with a unique Shioiri-no-ike (pond). “Shioiri” is a technique of drawing in sea water and using its tidal movements to change the shape of the pond.

On the island in the middle of the pond is the “Nakajima-no-ochaya (central island teahouse)” where guests can have tea and traditional cakes. The gardens are a nine-minute walk from Shiodome Station. In spring, visitors can enjoy the cherry blossoms, while in autumn cosmos flowers and colorful fall foliage make for splendid sights.

    This shrine located in the Tomioka district of Tokyo’s Koto City is affectionately known as the “Hachiman-sama of Fukagawa” and was established in 1624.
