Mukōjima-hyakka-en  (向島百花園)

This garden was built by an antiques dealer between 1804 and 1830. The name of the garden means "a garden with a hundred flowers that bloom throughout the four seasons", and the garden is indeed known for very beautiful flowering trees and shrubs. At the time when the garden first opened, its main feature was 360 ume trees. In later years, many different blooming flowers and plants mentioned in classic Chinese and Japanese works of literature and poetry were collected, enabling visitors to enjoy blooming flowers throughout the year. The garden is the only surviving flower garden from the Edo Period. What is also special about it is that it was not built as a part of a residence.
