Lovely zen garden in a villa
I got to see the lovely Zen garden of this villa from the 3rd floor. You can climb to the top floor on someÇ days of the year in January so we were lucky ... It is considered within the 100 major historical parks in Japan,and one can see the Imperial Tamozawa in Nikko, close to the Botanical Gardens, near where we stayed and Bake Kanmangafuchi Jizō and Abyss. The Imperial Villa Tamozawa was established in the year 1899, constructed around part of the former residence of a branch of the Tokugawa clan, which reached the domain of Japan between the years 1603 and 1868. The Villa is 39,390 square meters but in the actual construction time it was over 100,000 square meters.
