Grounds of the Four Seasons Hotel @ Chinzanso 椿山荘

椿山荘 pagoda chinzanso tokyo japan

While on a walk, just to the northeast of our apartment along the Kanda River (神田川), we came upon an open gate with nice looking grounds inside. We went in and strolled around, only later finding out that this property is part of the Four Seasons Hotel in Tokyo.

The above photo is of part of the pagoda on the grounds. There are only three pagodas in Tokyo. This one survived World War II, unlike most others in Tokyo. It was moved to this location in the early part of the 20th Century. On the pagoda itself it says the age is unknown but is thought to be about 500 years old.

Closer to the Four Seasons Hotel is this picturesque bridge. I need to head back to this spot when the leaves change colors soon.

    Ohayo gozaimasu – Thanks for taking the time to visit our part of Tokyo. I am working with the Four Seasons Hotel and agree that the garden is really a little piece of tranquility in this vibrant city. I look forward to welcoming you back in person when you next have time to come and see us. The colours will get rich and red over the next month. Wishing you and your family a fabulous experience during your year in Japan. Carl
