2 Detailed summary of Kyu-Iwasaki-tei gardens which is gorgeous
Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens was designed by British architect Josiah Condor as the main house of Hisaya Iwasaki, the third generation of the Mitsubishi Zaibatsu.
The site of Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens is one third of the former site, but I think it is large enough.
The most impressive thing in this garden is Western-style building.
Cream-colored outer walls, many pillars on the balcony, and delicate and beautiful decoration in the hall.
No matter where you look, it’s a breathtaking beauty.
As you move around the Western-style building along the route, your imagination will be aroused and you will recall the situation at the time.
I’m also obsessed with luxury Western-style buildings that I don’t usually see, and imagine living away from the ordinary world.
Around the garden, as if coming to a museum. Beautiful art is everywhere
It is recommended to take a leisurely tour of the Western-style building.
Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens has a lawn garden in the back of the Western-style building.
The whole garden is a very refreshing and comfortable space.
At the entrance to the Western-style building, there is just a garden. After the gorgeous decoration, the lawn that just spreads out highlights the simple beauty from the gap.
Behind the lawn, trees are planted to border the garden.
In autumn, the autumn leaves turn red and color the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens.
The majestic Western-style building seen through the red autumn leaves is also wonderful.
There is also a ginkgo tree at the entrance of the garden, which turns yellow in autumn and welcomes visitors.
I definitely want you to visit the autumn leaves season.
