The garden is built by traditional Japanese style. It has the big pound at center and pathway is set around the pound so that guests can enjoy walking and watching the pound from all angles. Along the pathway, many different types of flora, such as cherry blossom, plum tree and Japanese maple tree, are laid out and they give a seasonal color to the garden. In the pound, the set of stones are put to form bridges which allows guest to look close at wild birds and carps in the ponds. The garden is designed to feel the beauty of nature closely. In this completely calm atmosphere, you will foreget that you’re in the busy city Tokyo.
