JGarden Description:This garden was constructed by Iwasaki Yataro, founder of the Mitsui zaibatsu. Prior to this new design, the land was the site of the famous, private Edo garden belonging to Kuze Yamatonokami. When it was constructed, it used water from the Sumida River to supply the pond. The various islands are built from stones assembled from all over the Japanese archipelago. 




I had thought there was
but a single chrysanthemum here.
Who could have planted
the other one made, there in the
depths of Osawa pond?

hito moto ga
omoishi kiku wo
osawa no
