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. 




Arashiyama, white with snow,
Almost seems to be
Engulfed in clouds of flowers.
Pine trees, by a magic touch,
Transfigured into cherry trees.

  Muso Soseki
