Rikugi-en is an attractive landscaped park, located in Bunkyo district – one of the specialized areas of Tokyo, known as major educational centre with a rich history. The name comes from the combination of the garden two concepts – “Rikugi”, symbolizing the six kinds of medieval poetry waka, and “en” – a garden. The centrepiece of Rikugien Garden is the large pond. Two hills on a small island in the water represents the mythical, male and female deities of Shinto (Japanese religion) Izanagi and Izanami.
