Categories: Historic Sites, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

Still residential, so in some places notch or excessive tourist destinations of the souvenir shop with some soothing atmosphere.
