Like Rikugien and Koishikawa Korakuen, Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden was once a private garden of a high-ranking samurai official. Standing on land reclaimed from Tokyo Bay, high-rise mansions and office blocks now peer down on the pond and stone bridges of the garden which is regarded by some as the most beautiful in Tokyo. It was donated to Tokyo City in 1924.
