A captivating garden bridging Japan and the West

Once the residence of the Meiji era politician Mutsu Munemitsu (1844—1897), the Kyu-Furukawa Gardens is now a popular metropolitan park open to the public. The park is separated into two main sections, the upper half features a western style villa and rose garden, and the lower half has a Japanese garden and Shinji-ike pond, shaped like the Japanese kanji character for “heart”.

Located on the garden grounds is a western style house designed by English architect Josiah Conder, the same man behind the Nikolai-do Orthodox Cathedral. Just following World War II this building was temporarily used by the British Embassy as a dormitory.
