Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamoto

Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • This made for a beautiful relaxing day out, feeding the fish and taking in the views and garden on a sunny day. Hardly any visitors and would definitely recommend! 
  • We have now a modest tourist destination compared to the past, but was not crowded, so take the time to spend. It is fun to buy a carp bait shop, walk around the perimeter of the pond.

  • 公园不大,池子里全是肥肥的锦鲤。里面的神社看着还挺漂亮,还有“神水”可以喝。 日本因为信封神道教,到处都是神社,这里供奉的据说是狐狸神。 随便逛逛还行。
