Traditional Japanese House at Shibuya, Tokyo

Kyu Asakura House, located near Daikanyama Station, Shibuya, is one of a handful of traditional Japanese-style houses in central Tokyo. It was built in 1919 by Torajiro Asakura, the chairperson of the Tokyo Council.

The quaint house is designated as a nationally important cultural property and is now managed by Shibuya Ward. You can visit and see a part of its buildings and its stunning garden. It is the right place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.
