Stepping Stones at Kiyosumi Teien Garden - the site of the residence of the Edo Period magnate, Kinokuniya Bunzaemon. Later it became the residence of the Lord of Sekiyado castle, the period when the basic form of the garden came into existence. In 1878 Iwasaki Yataro chose this property as a garden for the entertainment of important guests. In later years, famous rocks from all over Japan were brought in to embellish the garden. The garden was completed in the Meiji Period and developed into a famous strolling garden centered around its large pond.
