The Edo period in Japan was a time when horticulture became open to all Japanese people, and this garden reflects this moment; it is a garden designed for everyone, regardless of their class or wealth.
The house and garden are closely linked, providing views from different angles. The owner and his guests can walk through the garden to enter the main house. When viewing the garden from inside the house, the green space and home unite to become a single, cohesive space.
