Garden · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Take a peaceful stroll around the Japanese and English landscaping at Kyu-Furukawa Gardens, and stop in the Western-style country house designed by English architect by Josiah Conder. Wander away from the house through the Western gardens, observing rose gardens and neatly trimmed, decorative hedgerows. Eventually you'll get to the Japanese garden, with its unusual trees, central pond, and waterfall. Don't miss the art museum located in the house, and wear comfortable shoes for your trip, as some of the pathways are cobbled. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tokyo trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Went during December so there were no roses in bloom but the park was a lot of fun to explore. The mansion overlooking the park was a stark contrast to the modem Japanese architecture. Highly recommend this park and I look forward to visiting it in the summer time when the roses are in bloom.
  • Beautiful place especially in fall! There are 2 different types of garden, Western style and Japanese one.
