Showa Kinen Park is a large space surrounded by greenery in the outer suburbs of Tokyo. A traditional Japanese garden was created in 1997 in a corner of this spacious park. The strolling garden surrounds a pond, overlooking a tea house. The delicacy of traditional Japanese landscaping takes account of details as small as a single flower plant or small stone. Kanfu-tei is the tea house built in the Sukiya style in harmony with the pond garden. It was built using mostly cypress special techniques such as roofing with cypress bark and special joints at pillars and beams.
