Kiyosumi Gardens - 清澄庭園

This garden is said to be the site of the residence of the famous Edo era business magnate, Kinokuniya Bunzaemon. In 1878, the founder of Mitsubishi, Iwasaki Yataro, acquired the land for use as a garden, and it opened as a garden in 1880 under the name of "Fukagawa Shimbokuen." The garden has a strolling-style tree-filled design centered around a large pond surrounded by rocks brought from all over Japan which reflects the shade from trees. Flowers such as azaleas and irises blossom in the garden.
