Hi! I'm Shogo Nagai.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

This tour will visit two Japanese gardens near Ginza Tokyo. These two gardens are typical "Daimyo Teien" (Feudal load's garden) of Edo period.
Japanese gardens are characterized by a unsymmetrical and ungeometric arrangement, not like western garden style. The basic concept of most Japanese gardens is from Zen Buddhism.
You will feel deep Japanese cultural atmosphere and traditional attitude to nature in these gardens.
