Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens旧岩崎邸庭園


This is a Tokyo Government-run park located in Taito City. Since the premises with its garden was the principal residence of the Iwasaki clan, who presided over the Mitsubishi zaibatsu, it has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of the country. There is a Japanese-style house based on the classical shoin style of architecture and a Western-style mansion featuring Jacobean motifs of 17th-century England. The impressive balance achieved in the juxtaposition of these two structures had a significant influence on Japanese architecture.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
