About Shukkeien Garden
A traditional Japanese garden with a history dating back to around 1620 in the Edo Period.
Shukkeien means “shrunken-scenery garden” - an excellent description of the valleys, mountains, forests and lake reproduced by the carefully cultivated garden. The central pond is surrounded by meandering paths offering the visitor different glimpses of the scenery. With several tea houses and small seating areas, the garden is a relaxing and beautiful oasis easily accessed from the city.
