Beautiful, free traditional garden – Former Yasuda Garden

Part of the East Tokyo Historical Walk, the Former Yasuda Garden is a wonderful (and free!) traditional garden near the Edo-Tokyo Museum.  It has a small lake, surrounded by some interesting traditional Japanese statues, bridges and lanterns.


A Japanese garden isn’t complete without a red bridge!

There is a nice, easy to follow route around the garden.


It’s pretty any time of the year.  These photos were taken in the late summer.
