1Walking around in the Koishikawa-kourakuen garden of Tokugawa branch family which is diffrent from any other gardens across Japan
This is the oldest Japanese garden in Tokyo and different from any other gardens across Japan. The garden was built in 1629 by Tokugawa Yorifusa who was the 11th son of the first shogun of Edo government, Tokugawa Ieyasu. Tokugawa Yorifusa incorporated the miniature view of the sightseeing spots from Edo (now Tokyo) through Kisoji (now in Nagano prefecture) to Kyoto inside this garden. The garden was enhanced by Tokugawa Yorifusa's son, Mitsukuni with an advice of Zhu Zhiyu, Chinese Confucian scholar, in the middle of 17th century.
