The grounds of Kiyosumi Teien were opened to the public in 1932. The garden is landscaped and there are many stones set around the grounds. There are also stepping stone paths, called “isowatari,” set into the lake. While you are walking on the stones you can see carp and turtles under the surface of the water as well as the beautiful reflections of the garden in the water.

There is a teahouse styled Ryotei, a traditional Japanese restaurant built out over the water and appears to be floating. Close to the entrance of the garden is the Taisho Kinenkan, a memorial hall of Emperor Taisho.

How to get there
The park is a short walk from Kiyosumi-Shirakawa Station on the Hanzomon and Oedo Subway Lines.

Hours: 9:00 to 17:00 (entry until 16:30)
