Beautiful English garden with a Japanese twist – Kyu-Furukawa Gardens, Tokyo

Kyu-Furukawa Garden is a really nice place to go in the summer or spring. It’s a strange mix of a traditional English garden with a traditional Japanese garden. Two gardens for the price of one! During May and June the roses are in full bloom, so we had a look.

Typically in Japan, places like this get busy, but not to the point where it’s annoying.

There is also a cool Japanese garden to explore, so it’s worth spending some time here.
