The garden, surrounded by skyscrapers, however, gives the impression of being outside the city. It was originally the residence of a daimyō, a regional lord, during his stays in Tokyo. It was part of a hunting reserve, but was destroyed by fire and restored in the 19th century. In the middle is a small tea house. To the south-east of the garden, a quay allows you to embark for a cruise on the Sumida River to Asakusa from 9am until the evening. It's a good alternative to the subway to reach the north of the city.
