Gyokudo Kawai was a master of Japanese painting who lived in Mitake. As a memorial to his accomplishments Gyokudo Museum was created by Ken Nakajima, the landscape architect. The garden can be viewed from many angles without changing its general look. A design concept used to create this garden is nesting technique, which has long been utilized in Japanese art. Natural stones found in the adjacent Tama River were used for the garden's stones. Instead of incorporating the forest woods as background, it directly employs the natural elements in the garden itself.
