Chiran Samurai Residence Garden, Minamikyushu
(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Chiran Samurai Residence Garden and other attractions in Minamikyushu, use our Minamikyushu tour planner.

  • After visiting Shiretoko chiran peace museum visit for a change of pace and is a good place. It is useful to visit, and settled in a corner building.

  • I walked from chiran peace Museum. About 20 minutes ' walk trot. If went ahead the chiran peace Museum, so if you are 廻ra here and the chiran peace Museum on foot will be better. From reading, read brochures about Samurai mansion Garden represents something isn't an unknown, so it is safe.
