Kyu-Yasuda Teien Gardens

Established in 1701 at the Tokyo residence of Honjo Munesuke, the daimyo of the Hitachi-Kasama domain, the garden features a pond in the shape of the Japanese character for heart ("kokoro") that's fed from the adjacent Sumida river. It later became the residence of Ikeda Akimasa, the lord of Bizen-Okayama and was subsequently acquired by the Yasuda family. Nowadays, it's a public garden (free admission), located just north of the Sumo Kokugikan and the Edo-Tokyo Museum in Ryogoku.
