Kyu-Furukawa Gardens旧古河庭園


A mansion and gardens constructed in the Taisho period to serve as a residence for the Furukawa family. With the post-war dissolution of the zaibatsu conglomerates, the facility was nationalized. After the property was designated a national Cultural Property in 1982, the grounds and building were refurbished. Today, the mansion serves as an art museum commemorating Yonetaro Otani, a man who built his fortune in the steel and hotel industries. The museum’s tea room is open to the public and here visitors can the beautiful antique interior while sipping a cup of tea. An advance reservation via return postcard is necessary to tour areas other than the tea room.

          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.
