Former Mitsui Villa Area
In the Meiji period, the head of Mitsui Zaibatsu (family-run conglomerate) had a villa in this area. On the grounds were a Japanese garden, tea house (national treasure), and "Shiroyama-sou villa" which had been built with timber taken from famous temples throughout Japan. Now, this historical area has been made into a park surrounded by rich nature and culture. It is loved by many people who come here to relax and enjoy nature.
