Opened For The First Time! Deep Green Garden & So Beautiful Reflection

As a traditional Japanese house representative of the early Showa Period, it was designated as a national tangible cultural asset in 2016. And it has opened to public since this summer. I could be refreshed for the tea, sweets and wonderful green reflections even the weather was hot.
