A Hop, Skip and a Jump
A stone lantern and stepping stones on the grounds of Kyu-yasuda Teien (former Yasuda Gardens) in Ryogoku, Tokyo.

This is a small Japanese garden located behind the Kokugikan (sumo hall) in Ryogoku that was once owned by Zenjiro Yasuda, founder of the Yasuda financial group. The garden features a very picturesque reflecting pond, stone lanterns, and a small Shinto shrine. It's an excellent oasis of chill in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Tokyo (and admission is free to boot!).
