House that has a beautiful shoin-style garden

If you visit Katsushika Yamamoto-Tei, you can see a Shoin-style garden.

This garden has stones and a pond in the front area and trees and a waterfall in the back area. It seems that this garden is beautiful, partly because open space of the pond and crowded area of lush greenery are a contrasting pair. It has different style from Japanese circuit gardens like Rikugien Gardens, Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens, and Kyu-Shiba-Rikyu Gardens.

Yamamoto-Tei is the 2-story wooden Japanese-style house with a tiled roof except Western-style "Houou-no-Ma Room." Historically, Yamamoto Family moved to this house in 1923 and repeatedly renovated it until 1930, reflected by architectural style in Taisho Period (1912-1926) and Showa Period (1926-1989).

You can see this garden from living rooms at the 1st floor of Yamamoto-Tei House. While there are some pillars, you can see the garden directly or through glass doors across from a corridor.

It opened in 1991. It is a middle-sized public house of Katsushika City at residential area in Shibamata, Katsushika City, Tokyo. Its nearest station is Shibamata station.

For your information, you can go to Katsushika Shibamata Tora-San Museum and Shibamata Taishakuten within a walking distance. In summer, Katsushika Firework Festival is held around Edogawa River near this garden.
