Photo:GardenThe projection of the building above the pond was modeled after a motif which can be seen in scroll paintings of the Heian Period (794-1185), while the House garden, designed by the seventh-generation famed Kyoto landscape artist Ogawa Jihei (also known as Ueji), charms people with the ambience of the Momoyama Period (late 16th century) or early Edo Period (early 17th century).

The International House building, although modern in design, was built in harmony with the garden. In October 2005 this garden was designated as a place of scenic beauty by Minato Ward.
