[ Mukoujima Hyakkaen Gardens @ Tokyo ]

a Japanese quince

“Mukoujima Hyakkaen Gardens” is beautiful garden in Tokyo. It was designated by the national government as a famous site of historical significance.

The garden dates back from the early 19th century of Edo era. It was first opened by a wealthy merchant together with his friends. It established an ideal place to enjoy flowers from classical literature and paintings all around the year.

Hyakkaen is different from the traditional “daimyo” gardens. It is more personal and comfortable to have a close look at those flowers that have reminiscent of the Edo culture.

Spring time is particularly enjoyable. There are beautiful Japanese flowers come into bloom one after another.
Recently, it adds the picturesque views in the garden. It is the cherry blossoms together with Tokyo Sky Tree.

We enjoy the garden throughout the year!
