Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamoto

(3.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
With a lush rolling landscape and fresh clear waters filled with colorful carp, Suizenji Jojuen Garden remains a welcoming sanctuary and authentic example of a traditional Japanese garden. Originally constructed in 1636, the gardens gradually grew to include the Izumi Shrine, a Noh theater, and Kokin-Denju-no-Ma teahouse. The landscaping is said to represent the 53 stations of "Tokaido," a well-known route between Edo and Kyoto. Stroll through delicate foliage, across hills and along the edge of ponds, observing the beauty of the miniature Mount Fuji, a landmark at the heart of the park.

  • Made in front of the Kumamoto earthquake last year, "before temple festival come 2016 Lights" to is the impression when I went. Kumamoto earthquake occurred shortly after it, don't post it had become. I think it is represented immediately after an earthquake is after 干上gattari water of the pond in the Park, but now you can see usually, so I want this year held cherry and beautiful Koi light come. During the period 2016 suizen-JI JoJu park admission fee ¥ 400 free. Garden decorated with light bamboo sculptures and pots is very fantastic, Fuji 山moto light was very beautiful, cherry blossoms and flowers. Suizen-JI JoJu Park parking lot, but have a metered parking around and close to tram station. Water before night seen Temple Park is a great opportunity, I think.

  • Little may seem insignificant compared with the three greatest gardens and temples and shrines in Kyoto. You can see it looking at Park Street. Also, tries to take a picture in the background would enters buildings, such as the building of "whatever". Can still moderate size explore the quiet and calm. A gentle curve is visited in the winter, may not have had easy-to-understand opulence, such as spring or fall, well manicured Garden was beautiful.
