Tokoen, a garden in Okayama City which was once the private garden of Ikeda Tadakatsu, has been closed and is being torn down, to be replaced by condos. Sad

I saw the headline and thought, "oh, I'd better make sure to get to Okayama this summer, then." But, it's already too late. The article shows photos of the garden being dismantled.

I can understand the space constraint in Japan. But ramming down a historically significant place for a condominium is not acceptable. It is ok. In my city, they pulled down a historically significant building to construct a shopping mall. Sad
