This study partially clarified the contents and daily use of the palace garden of Reizei Tominokoji-dono residence during the mid-Kamakura period. The study method was a literature review using “The Dairy of Nakatsukasa no Naishi” with a focus on descriptions of the garden and use of the garden in the daily life of Emperor Fushimi, etc. It was found from this study that the basic structure of the garden of Reizei Tominokoji-dono residence was a basic Shinden-zukuri garden, where yarimizu (artificial stream in a garden) was running from the northeast side into a pond on the south side. The plants in the garden were a cherry tree (Sakon no Sakura) on the southeast side in front of the Shinden and a mandarin orange tree (Ukon no Tachibana) on the southwest side. In the north garden, Henon bamboo existed. The daily casual usage of the garden was entertainment including moon viewing, boating, viewing of the sky and scenery of the garden, composing poem and playing music. The garden and sky were mostly viewed from each room of the buildings and boats. The views of the garden and sky were not just beautiful but often cheerless. The members including Emperor Fushimi, who were all well-versed in creating Japanese poem, appreciated the garden view by finding beauty in various natural phenomena and shared the feeling among the members.
