Tonogayato Gardens 殿ヶ谷戸庭園

2 Minami-cho, Kokubunji City, Tokyo

Celebrate Japanese landscape gardening at this noble and verdant oasis

Peer back into history with a visit to the Tonogayato Gardens, a peaceful pocket of green—but riot of color in autumn—that makes artful use of the Musashino Plateau's natural landforms. Just a 2-minute walk from Kokubunji Station on the JR Chuo Line, these quintessentially Japanese gardens are an officially designated Place of Scenic Beauty.

These picturesque gardens are centered around a pond, featuring seasonal plants and flowers, a stepped bamboo forest and Japanese tea-house. Stroll the gardens, incorporating both Japanese and Western styles, and imagine their noble history. Originally located in the Eguchi family's villa grounds, the gardens were later bought by Mitsubishi's founder before being purchased by the government and opened to the public in 1979.
