Kiyosumi-teien Garden

Travel Guide - Kiyosumi-teien Garden

Information

It is said there used to be a residence of Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, a business tycoon in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).
Then Iwasaki Yataro, the founder of Mitsubishi, acquired the land and founded a garden called "Fukagawa Shinboku-en" in 1880 for his employees and important guests.
After the Yataro's death, his brother and son developed the garden to what it is today.

Kiyosumi-teien is a representative garden of the Meiji Period (1868 – 1912), with its big fountain in close proximity, a miniature hill, and a dry garden with famous rare stones.
It is a traditional Japanese garden of “Kaiyushiki-teien", a landscape style with artificial hills and fountains.
