Former Yasuda Garden
The Former Yasuda Garden was made in the Edo period and is a large strolling garden built around a central pond. This is one of the most famous gardens dating back to the Edo period and draws water from the Sumida River. The gardens are located close to the National Sumo Arena from which you can enjoy wonderful views of the towering Tokyo Skytree. The pond is in the shape of the Japanese kanji, Kokoro, which means “heart.” The pond hosts a number of creatures, including colorful carp, sun bathing turtles and waterfowl also visit the area. On the garden grounds is a beautiful red bridge crossing the pond and a shrine dedicated to the inari gods of fortune. This is a recommended spot to escape some of the bustle of Tokyo and find a quiet place to connect with the nature, culture, and peace of Tokyo.
