Built in 1935 and known as the Showa Era’s ‘Palace of the Dragon God,’ Meguro Gajoen was the first wedding complex to be built in Japan, with banquet halls and luxury hotel facilities.
The main attraction is the spacious atrium garden which is entirely covered by a glass dome featuring a natural stream and greenery.
This is a popular spot for wedding pictures.
From the atrium, you have a good view of the rest of the multi-story facility.
Just outside, you will find a traditional Japanese garden, with a waterfall and pond full of koi (Japanese carp fish).
A gallery of over 100 meters in length is decorated with colorful carved wooden panels.
You will find traditional Japanese artifacts such as a mikoshi (portable shrine), umbrellas and kimonos.
Upstairs, the Japanese style reception room and hallways are gorgeously decorated with colorful traditional wood cravings and pictures.
Meguro Gajoen offers full service planning for both traditional and Western type weddings.
Meguro Gajoen is another example of how Japan blends tradition with modern ways.
