The 3rd Toyokuni,Gototeien

Popular ukiyoe artist, ground where is related to Toyokuni Utagawa

This garden is reminiscent of Edo, made based on the historical fact that the popular late Edo ukiyoe artist, Toyokuni Utagawa III, lived by Gonohashi. There are a number of interesting things to see, such as an ukiyoe gallery that changes exhibitions each season, as well as Shunuri-no Taikobashi (a vermilion arched bridge) and Kawara-nu Koi-no Ike (the unchanging love pond). Approximately 600 carp (koi) swim in Kawaranu Koino Ike. In the Edo period, tiles (kawara) of Edojo castle were made around Kameido. This pond was named "Kawara-nu Koi-no Ike" by incorporating these homophones, "kawara" and "koi". It is recommended to visit it as a couple.
