This garden is larger than imagined and will take half an hour or more to explore. For a private garden it rivals many that are supported by cities. Many bridges cross an excellent koi pond.

The gardens are nothing short of beautiful, and are difficult to fault. While there is a section currently shut there is still plenty to see and enjoy in possibly one of the calmest places in Tokyo

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
