Shukkei-en Garden, Hiroshima

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Observe the resilience of life at Shukkei-en Garden--just a short walk away from ground zero of the World War II nuclear attack, which obliterated almost everything. Originally commissioned in 1620, the garden morphed throughout history while still maintaining its purpose--to shrink natural scenery, making it seem larger than its actual size. Hence, the grounds boast representations of mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, and islets. Thanks to local enthusiasm, the garden reopened in 1951 after the war, and now it welcomes all guests to participate in monthly tea ceremonies and leisurely activities. It can get busy during weekends, especially when plums and cherries blossom, or when maples turn red in fall.

  • Miyajima, Hiroshima, and won wide Memorial, along with four other local tourist spot known as compared with the fact that the scale of the Japanese garden is somewhat small. Pretty good to shoot, such as decorated family photos., rain and came out and in a hurry ...

  • Forget that were on the whole, fairly widely in the city, and is very calm. It is put in the free admission is cheap and elderly people regardless of the place of residence and show me your certificate. Good let free in it's a wonderful place. Would be good exercise while taking a negative ion. I made plans to go to Hiroshima this year so if you have time please go.

  • Visited on Saturday morning. Unexpectedly vacant, you can watch in the room. So far had panicked at the entrance to park for the advice "be turned separately as there is." the route as an amusement park. Quite a difference between the high and low of tsukiyama is clean many ponds. Everywhere we won't get bored and views. As Route 40 minutes and quite enjoyed. … There was a course in the middle of the route across the pond on the island of stone, stone was 2-3 cm below the surface of the water. Pay attention to footwear.
