Why don’t you see double cherry blossoms at Kiyosumi Japanese garden?
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
I went to Kiyosumi Garden.
It is one of the Tokyo Metropolitan Japanese gardens.
This place was said to be the residence of Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, a famous wealthy merchant in the 17th century.
In the 18th century, it became the residence of a samurai.
In the 19th century, it was again purchased by businessman Yataro Iwasaki.
He developed it as a beautiful garden.
The garden was damaged in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, but was restored and opened in 1932.
In the center of the garden, there is a pond, with three middle islands.
There is also a Japanese-style house called Ryotei on the side of the pond.
It is a sukiya-Japanese style building that juts out into the pond.
This is what makes the garden so rich in Japanese atmosphere.
Ryotei was built by the Iwasaki family in 1909 to welcome British General Kitchener, who came to Japan as a state guest.
Double cherry blossoms
Beautiful double-flowered cherry trees were blooming in this Kiyosumi Garden.
It was blooming at the place behind Ryotei.
There are many Nishikigoi in the pond.
Compared to other gardens, they are all very big!
There are a few benches in the garden, and there are always people sitting and eating snacks.
It is about a 5-minute walk from Kiyosumi-Teien Subway Station.
And the fee is 300yen( 3 dollars).
Why don’t you come and relax in the tranquility of Kiyosumi-Teien?
You will enjoy the traditional Japanese silent atmospher.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
