Above is a traditional garden house, usually used for enjoying the garden while drinking tea or perhaps reading. I would have really liked to go in, but it was incredibly tiny and there was a long line with a lot of people. So, I didn’t.
Across is a torii gate. You usually find them at the entrance to a shrine.
Then, net to the garden house was an old lantern. The inscription was insanely difficult, being made up mostly of old stylized kanji characters. It had an English translation somewhere near by I suppose, but I couldn’t find it.
