Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamoto

3.9
#1 of 15 in Parks in Kumamoto
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.

  • Gardens are well-maintained even the weather was so beautiful. You could see the beautiful Plum blossoms, plum season there. May as well go in tune with seasonal flowers. It was my first time ever visiting the Kumamoto again. Personally, in the city of no. 1 favorite spot.

  • Beautiful park to visit during cherry blossom season. Thanks to the festival admission was free. Lots to see in the park and makes for a wonderful walk and relaxing area. Surrounding t are nice little activity booths as well as stalls. Outside of it are areas for nice food and other shopping including a duty free shop.
  • You have to go here first when you come to Kumamoto. This garden is like a heaven for me, I enjoy this garden so much. If you have time, spend 2-3 hours in here. There are shrine and torii gate as well as sakura cherry blossoms and statue. Interesting!
  • Wonderful ancient garden of medieval times , it still has the tea house that was at its origin . Great scenery. You can have matcha and sweet there enjoying the view on the lake, bridges and ducks and birds.
  • Lovely garden. If you are a photography hobbist or nature lover or both, you can't miss this. The landscape changes over various seasons. There are Japanese carps in the pond, different Flora and fauna as well as a local crane that lives in the park. Small shops are also located within the park.
  • Lovely garden, there is a shrine in the middle of it. Not crowded at all. Beautiful scenery, not big at all 30 to 45 minutes are all you need to circle it. Has admission fee.
