Landscaped Japanese garden featuring a large pond, bridges, picturesque paths & tea houses. Tokugawaen is a Japanese garden with walkways winding around a central pond in the style of major daimyo gardens from the Edo period. A clear stream flows from a waterfall through a ravine and continues to a pond representing the ocean, a sight that symbolically condenses Japan’s natural landscape.
Furthermore, Tokugawaen is characterized by hilly terrain, transplanted woods, and large rocks appearing from all angles. The overall magnificence of the daimyo garden can be seen through the use of bold changes in composition and the incorporation of a wide variety of elements. People can enjoy the garden throughout the four seasons with beautiful greenery, autumn colors, and flowers such as peonies and irises.
