Springtime opening of the Museum Garden

庭園 The Museum Garden behind the Honkan main building is open during the spring. We invite you to enjoy strolling among the five teahouses, each with their own history, as well as the cherry blossoms, which about 10 varieties bloom from one to another. The flourishing garden is most beautiful at this time of the year.
We celebrate this spring with opening dates extended than usual.



The garden is illuminated until 19:30 on the following Fridays and Saturdays: March 31, April 1, 7, and 8.

To coincide with the special exhibition Chanoyu, The Arts of Tea Ceremony, the Essence of Japan, the interior of the teahouse Tengoan can be viewed from outside the building, from Tuesday, April 11 to Sunday, May 7, 2017 (excluding Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 30).
