Kiyosumi Garden dates back to the Edo-era. It is belived to have been the residence of business tycoon Kinokuniya Bunzaemon. In the Meiji Era, Iwasaki Yataro, founder of Mitsubishi acquired the land. In 1878, Yataro Iwasaki rebuild the garden and imported 55 huge rocks from all over Japan. The garden was used for entertaining guest and company gatherings. Nowadays, the garden is one of the most pleasant traditional Japanese garden in Tokyo. There are three big islands and a teahouse on the pond. You can enjoy hopping from one stone to another. As you amble around the shores and cross the bridges, you can admire the carp and curious turtles.
