Kyu-Furukawa Gardens [photos]

On Saturday April 14, 2007 I spent a sunny afternoon walking around Kyu-Furukawa Gardens.  It is one of about a dozen official traditional gardens around Tokyo.  I’ve been to about half.  I’d say this about a medium-sized one.  What makes this garden special is the large, traditional-style western house on its premises.  I recommend this park for a quiet afternoon alone taking photos, or as a nice date location.
