The Cultural Garden and Tea Room of the Former Yamazaki Family 


Designed by Katsuya Yasuoka, which was said to be the first one of the first modern residential writers.
It was built as a separate residence of the old generation confectionery shop "Kameya" of Kawagoe,
and the records which the royal family stayed also remained, and also had the role as a private guest house.
