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.
