Sudo-kōen

Park in Ueno & Yanesen

Looking like something straight from a woodblock print, this gorgeous pocket park is worth the stroll from the Sendagi end of Yanaka to view its brilliant vermilion bridge over an ornamental pond to the small shrine for the diety Benzaiten. In the background a waterfall splashes over rocks down the hill.

This was formerly the private garden of the merchant Yoshizaemon Sudo.
