≪Autumn Foliage Spots≫ Tonogayato Gardens
Garden that take advantage of natural terrain
From the second to fourth years of the Taisho Period, this garden was created as part of the grounds for a residence for the Vice-President of the Manchurian Railway, Eguchi Teijo. It was designed and built by a landscape gardening organization located in Akasaka called “Sengoku.” In 1929, it was purchased by the founder of Mitsubishi, Iwasaki Yataro. Based on a design created by Tsuda Saku, a main residence building and tea ceremony building (Kouyou-tei) were added and a combination Western and Japanese-style strolling garden with trees and ponds was completed.
The garden is located on the southern edge of the Kokubunji rift line. The natural flora in the Musashi plateau and the cliff-like rift area are well protected.
