Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden (旧芝離宮, Kyū Shiba Rikyū) was, like Rikugien and Koishikawa Korakuen, 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.
