Tokyo National Museum  (東京国立博物館)

The garden of the Tokyo National Museum became the home for 5 historical buildings gathered from all over Japan.
There is a tea house called Tengo-an (転合庵) that was designed by the famous Japanese tea master Kobori Enshu (小堀遠州) in Kyoto. Another, Kujo-kan (九条館) was disassembled and brought here from the Imperial Palace in Kyoto.

The tea houses can be rented for tea ceremonies and haiku gatherings.

The garden is open for visitors in November, the peak season of autumn foliage and in spring during cherry blossom. It is located to the north side of the Hokan Gallery.
