Okuma Garden

Okuma Garden is a garden that combines Japanese and Western styles, designed by Kason Sasaki. It is said to have been established in 1887. Before Okuma Garden was completed, there had also been a garden, but the previous one did not have as much grass as Okuma garden did, and any pond and mound. After Shigenobu Okuma died, it was given to Waseda University to fulfill his dying wish. Although it was almost ruined because of the outbreak of the war, it was restored once the war ended. According to a book called "Kakuen-gojusshu"that was issued in 1910, there were mountains, valleys, fountains, and towers inside the garden.
