In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Kyu-Furukawa Gardens were once home to Toranosuke Furukawa, the third-generation owner of the Furukawa conglomerate. The park combines Western and Japanese styles. It's set on a hill, with a Western mansion at the top, a rose garden in the middle, and a Japanese garden at the bottom.
The mansion and grounds were designed by Josiah Conder, who also worked on the Rokumeikan, and the Kyu-Iwasake-Tei Garden. He is known as "the father of Japanese modern architecture." The Japanese garden was designed by Ogawa Jihei VII, who made his name in Kyoto through projects such as Murin-an, and the Heian Shrine gardens. In 2006, it was designated as a national Place of Scenic Beauty.
