City Park
Botanical Garden
Shukkeien was built by the lord of Hiroshima. It is in the typical style of the Edo period and is said to be constructed based on the architecture of the West Lake in China. The view of mountains and rivers, the spirit of Kyoto and the elegance of remote mountains are condensed in the courtyard, hence it gets the name "miniature landscape garden" (Shukkeien). There is a pond in the center of the park, in which there are small lands of different sizes, valleys, small bridges and pavilions cleverly arranged, and it is full of fun to watch around. Therefore, it is also called a parade garden. There are flowers in the courtyard all year round, and its charm is endless.
