The Kiyosumi Teien Garden from Fukagawa is one of the oldest, and at the same time the most beautiful Japanese gardens in Tokyo.
The garden was established during the Edo period by a Daimyo and it was rebuilt during the Meiji period by Iwasaki Yataro, the founder of Mitsubishi. It is a Kaiyu (meaning “many pleasures") style garden, with pond, islands, 55 huge rocks and an artificial hill.
