Kiyosumi Teien Garden

The Kiyosumi Teien garden is designated as a site of scenic beauty. Troughout its long history, the garden was the home of important political figures and wealthy merchants. For example, it once belonged to Mitsubishi’s founder and was used for the enjoyment of his employees and guests. The garden is now open to the public. Kiyosumi garden is built around a pond and features many stepping stones that allow visitors to get closer to the water. Beware of the Suppon, the Japanese soft shelled turtle that won’t hesitate to bite your fingers. They are actually strict carnivores!
