1. KYU-YASUDA-TEIEN/The Edo period garden

This beautiful Daimyo’s garden was made around 1691. The pond was laid from Sumida River, of which the changing of seawater level by the ebb and flow was enjoyed. Now it reproduces by pump. You have calm time here although it’s very close to Ryogou Station.
And if you visit Ryogoku in the early summer, you can enjoy the Edo-period taste festival “Noryo-no-yube” which opens on Sat. & Sun. evening. Japanese traditional music performances on stage and the green tea ceremony are implemented on the pond, and food stools open in the garden.
