Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamoto

4.0
#1 of 14 in Parks in Kumamoto
Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • Park has been all afternoon. But Park is so large that not much shade, so heat is required. Tsukiyama remained in the impression.

  • I've never seen a garden quite like Suizenji Jojuen Garden- it is so beautiful! The hills are yellow at this point in the year, but the contrast of the yellowed grass against the immaculately shaped trees was just stunning. The water in the natural spring pond is so clear and you'll see plenty of ducks and big koi fish having a swim about in the water. There is a small entrance fee to go into the garden- if you have a 1 day tram pass you will be able to get a 10% discount off the admission price!
  • A beautiful garden, with well manicured lawns, plenty of coy fish in the water and small shops along the edge.
  • You can feed birds and fish here, or just spent wonderful hours to enjoy the sunshine🌞
  • A garden with nice small hills and trees. But to expensive.
  • Very good scenic spots,full of strong regional characteristics and the various culture ,recommend place.

Where to stay in Kumamoto

By far the majority of the accommodations in Kumamoto lie to the east and south of the main park containing the castle. Ranging from budget guesthouses to luxury hotels, and even luxury guesthouses (traditional "ryokan," with onsite spas), the accommodations of this central district are spread fairly evenly between the park and Shirakawa River. Many visitors to Kumamoto opt to stay further to the west along one of the peninsulas that jut out into Shimabara Bay.
