Kyu Furukawa Garden

Kyu-Furukawa Teien(旧古河庭園)

The Western-style mansion in the Kyu-Furukawa garden was built by Josiah Conder in 1917. The adjacent garden was designed by him as well.

The Japanese-style garden in the lower area of the garden was constructed by the famous Kyoto garden designer Ogawa Jihei.

This garden is famous for:

  • The rose garden
  • The Japanese wax tree in fall
  • The moss covered tea garden
  • The huge artificial waterfall
