Time Out says

Spring is the best time to walk through a bamboo grove and the forest at Tonogayato Garden is so lush that it’s a designated cultural asset of Tokyo. This garden in Kokubunji has a storied noble history: it was established between 1913 and 1915 on the grounds of a villa built for the vice president of the Manchurian railway, Eguchi Teijo, and was later purchased by the founder of Mitsubishi, Iwasaki Yataro, in 1929, who added a tea house to the premises. Tonogayato’s beauty lies in the diversity of its landscape, which features a waterfall leading to a natural spring.
