Because the area was reconstructed recently, many modern tall buildings towered around the Hamarikyu Gardens. This site was a villa of Tokugawa clan. That means this site sat in the shadow of the center of power at the time of construction. Yet it is swallowed up the city center of Tokyo in today's environment.
Walking around the garden, the modern buildings came into view on a constant basis. When I walked the path in the garden, some tall buildings were seen on the other side. It was a blessed relief that the hurried world couldn't come into the gardens. The pastoral atmosphere wafted here. Any business deadlines were not seen in the site. A mother and her kid enjoyed picnicking on the turf in a leisurely way.
