There is a teahouse called Tengōan (転合庵) that was designed by the famous Japanese tea master Kobori Enshū (小堀遠州) in Kyoto. Another, Kujōkan (九条館) was disassembled and brought here from the Imperial Palace in Kyoto.
The teahouses can be rented for tea ceremonies and haiku gatherings.
The garden is open for visitors in November, the peak season of autumn foliage and in spring during cherry blossom. It is located on the north side of the Honkan Gallery.
