Mejiro Garden is a circular Japanese garden that opened in 1990 in a quiet residential area of Mejiro. The garden is free of charge and is used as a place of relaxation not only by tourists but also by local residents.

The tea house in the garden is called Akatori-an, after the magazine Akai-tori, which was first published in the area. The Akatori-an is used as a resting place and also for haiku and tea ceremonies.

The rich scenery can be seen throughout the year, but many people visit during the weeping cherry blossom season in front of the Akatori-an and in autumn when the leaves change to autumnal hues.
