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.

旧安田庭園/江戸名園

元禄4年頃、陸奥国笠間藩主により築造された。池に隅田川の水を引き込んだ潮入り回遊庭園として名高く、潮の干満による水位の変化を楽しんだといわれている。
明治維新後は旧備前岡山藩主邸、次いで安田善次郎氏所有となり、氏の没後、東京市に寄付された。太平洋戦争後、墨田区に移管、復元。
毎年8月上旬開催の「納涼の夕べ」は江戸文化に興じる優雅なイベントで、池の上の舞台で琴・尺八が演奏され、茶席の野点も池の上! その他、いろいろな屋台が楽しめる。
