Chiran Samurai Residence Garden, Minamikyushu

3.9
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Minamikyushu
Wander around Chiran Samurai Residence Garden, a picturesque manicured environment preserved for over 250 years. Explore what lies behind high, hedge-topped walls, a hidden world steeped in history, unblemished by modern day scenes. Made up of seven gardens, each was designed by gardeners brought in specially from Kyoto in the 17th century, with the intention of the garden being viewed from the houses above. Sadly, this cannot be done, as the houses are still occupied, but you still have the freedom to explore each of the seven individual gardens in your own time, viewing intricately pruned trees and shrubs, and the ancient defensive walls.

  • Rain had visited some garden with the volunteer guides. By Akira Hirayama 1 garden is your hope demonstration and how to open and close the shutters. It is a way to change the direction of the storm at Garden side open completely. Guide it's Satsuki, dampen it, brought the stones make a garden in your story is easy I convinced you and dare clips, actually at that point part of the garden look. And is a good spot. Ago that I need a land there. I think it is suitable for walks and weather permitting.

  • Saigo no matter how it was crowded with the effect. Lined with houses set of half more than actually descendants live is like. I'd think should be easy to use, and no parking. We recommend you go here in come at high food to be.

  • Impressing samurai resident. Concentrated in one narrow street. Such kind of gardens hard to see in other samurai colony
  • “Noble Samurai Houses & Gardens” The samurais have a reputation of being calm and in a zen like state and it's no wonder with these beautiful gardens and houses they lived in they are so peaceful and so well groomed, from the moment you walk into these gardens there's and feeling of nostalgia and nobility, I wish that I could have a small replica garden like these (food for thought).
  • Beautiful and serene. Unspoiled by busloads of tourist
  • Must see in chiran
  • If you look down the road, I see a big expectations and no big deal thing. Less than the size of the House. If you are the only one to go this way. The root is largely confined to omitting the recommendations
