≪Autumn Leaves Viewing Spot≫ Tonogayato Gardens
Tonogayato Gardens making use of natural landform skillfully
From the second to fourth years of the Taisho Period, this garden was created as part of the grounds for a residence for the Vice-President of the Manchurian Railway, Eguchi Teijo. It was designed and built by a landscape gardening organization located in Akasaka called “Sengoku.”
The garden is located on the southern edge of the Kokubunji rift line. The natural flora in the Musashi plateau and the cliff-like rift area are well protected. The Kokubunji rift line has been supplying spring water for a long time and the spring water in the garden is designated as the 57 best springs by Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
There are about 200 Japanese maple trees in the garden, especially the maple surrounding Jiro Benten Pond is worth seeing.
