Kaiyu-shiki-teien style Japanese gardens, traditional promenade gardens, first started to form during the Edo Period (1600–1854) at the residences of nobles and warlords. They were meant to be seen by following a particular path leading from one scene to another. To catch the viewer’s attention, different techniques were used such as miegakure, or "hide-and-reveal" which used fences, bamboo and winding paths to hide specific scenery so the visitor would only see them when reaching the best view point. Enjoy the beautiful and authentic scenery at the Kiyosumi Garden with a hot beverage at the teahouse located on the pond.
