The Koishikawa Korakuen garden
This garden was established as a part of the Mito-Tokugawa clan’s Edo(Tokyo) residence in 17 century. Mito-Tokugawa clan was a one of the Tokugawa Gosanke, the Shogun-Tokugawa’s three branches.
Of course, Shige and Lee couldn’t enter this garden because Lee is a dog. Please have a look at the great view from the gate and the beautiful outer wall of the Korakuen garden! !(whew)
Actualy, I haven't entered the garden, but I heard that the inside is beautiful.
I found the mark of Tokugawa on the wall roof. The crest of hollyhock. The symbol of the power.
According to the sign board which stood beside the gate, the stone of the wall basement was originally transferred by the local clan for construction of the stonewall of the Tokugawa’s Edo castle. Even now, you can see the carved signs on the stone face. It indicates the origin (the name of the clan).
