- The vast Iwasaki estate that was founded in 1886 by the Iwasaki family is an important cultural asset. It has a beautiful western style residence, a princely Japanese style house and extensive gardens. The craft of making 'kinkarakawa paper'(gold leather work like paper) has almost disappeared. But if you visit the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens, you will see this work on the garden's wall. Admission: adults, JPY200 senior citizens. Free for Jr. High school and Elementary school students living in Tokyo.
