JGarden Description:Gyoen Teien is the East Garden of the present Imperial Palace in Tokyo. Construction of a garden on the site began in 1630 and it was rebuilt again in 1645 but it has had so many transformations since that time that it's current design is firmly grounded in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is a stroll garden with several memorable views including a rock waterfall, a stone beach and a stone lantern. 




Just one kettle
Is enough for cha-no-yu -
How lacking in conviction to yearn
For so many utensils.
