Edo Fukagawa & the Steamer's Stone

 

This is a tour to visit the museum bringing back the days of old-Edo city and the Japanese garden famous for unique stone settings which was owned by a mail steamer company.

*This tour is nothing to do with J.K.Rowling. I'm just a fan of the "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone".

ITINERARY

 

  • Meet the guide at Kiyosumi-Shirakawa station

  • Let's search for the precious garden stones placed here and there at the Kiyosumi Garden. Turtle and carp in the pond are always the favorites of kids!
