The vast classical Japan garden covering over 18,000 square meters was opened by Hara Sankei, a businessman who made a fortune with the Japanese silk trade. Rinshunkaku, the Three-Storied Pagoda of Old Toumyouji are amongst the properties designated as Important Cultural Properties by the Japanese government. The garden is also a famous viewing spot for plum and cherry blossoms, azaleas, and autumn leaves. Business hours are extended during special events.
Experience a traditional Japanese Garden while learning a little history about Mr. Hara Sankeien, the designer. Grab a brochure at the entrance to find out which of the historic buildings are currently open for your exploration.
