Tojo-tei Tojogaoka Garden is the former domain of Kokugawa Akitake, often called “the last Shogun". In 1887 when the last Shogun returned power to the emperor. At the time, a new era had begun and people from Shogun families faded into obscurity. The house was designed in styles of both the Edo and Meiji periods with only precious materials used in its construction. The minimalism found in the design creates the beauty of form. The garden surrounding the home is an important element havin been designed so that seasonal followers can be enjoyed viewing from all rooms.
