Sorakuen Garden Stable

The mansion and annex originally situated within Sorakuen Garden burned down during World War II air raids, only this western style stable (now a museum), fence, and gates remain. In 1963 the Sorakuen Hall and teahouse were completed and Hassam House, formerly of the Kitano district of foreign settlements, was moved and rebuilt on-site. The aforementioned Kawagozabune was restored and added to the garden in the 1980's.
