This residence on this site was probably built by Taira Tokitada in the Kamakura period. The house actually has two gardens on the southeast and north sides of the study. The southeast is thought to have been built in the early Edo period while th latter was probably done in the middle Edo. The southeast garden features a low mound, a dry waterfall or karetaki, and a 'distant mountain' or enzan. There is also a small rock island in a pond and sculpted azaleas.
The path of fallen leaves
Leads to the graves on the hill,
And stops there.
