Kyu-Furukawa part two, the Japanese stroll garden and tea house, 5th May 2019

After exploring the quite amazing collection of roses planted on the terraces of the formal garden surrounding the house at Kyu-Furukawa we walked down a flight of steps into a wonderful shady Japanese stroll garden. Tokyo is so built up that normally you never notice hills or slopes but in this garden you really drop down a pronounced slope from the house to find a pond shaped like the Kanji character for heart surrounded by trees and shrubs. Then off to one side in a fenced of glade there is a tea garden and tea house where for a few extra yen we could enjoy a bowl of matcha and some Japanese sweets.
