Shrinkage Garden is a small Japanese-style courtyard. It is said that it is the private residence of the vassal owner. The name of the landscape is very elegant. The Qingfeng Pavilion, Miaochi Pool and so on need to buy admission tickets here. Although the garden is small, it will take a lot of time to turn around.
Cherry blossom season, night cherry exhibition. Tickets are not expensive, only about 200 yen. Very recommended! There are many kinds of cherry blossoms in the garden, and the lighting effect is excellent! Compared with cherry appreciation in the daytime, don't have the same flavor.
The miniature garden, as its name implies, is a miniature version of a collection of places of interest and imitation. But there is also a saying that it got its name because it imitated and narrowed the West Lake scenery in Hangzhou, China. The center of the miniature garden is the watering pond, which is dotted with dozens of islands, big and small, surrounded by hills, and matched with bridges, streams, pavilions, tea rooms and so on. The bridge across the Hongqiao in the middle of the Guanmiao Pool has typical Japanese architectural features, small radian and delicate. The two main buildings of the miniature garden, Qingfeng Hall and Mingyuan Hall, are absolutely the central building of the garden. They are traditional and harmony-style buildings with ancient bark roofs. The area of the miniature garden is not large, and it is even smaller and elegant against the backdrop of the high-rise buildings around it. There are Koi carp and turtle in the irrigation pond. Koi carp is the largest size I have ever seen. As long as someone feeds, the scene can hardly be seen directly, and even the most beautiful and noble animals still have the essence of "birds die for food".
Hiroshima's scenic courtyard, facing Hiroshima City, all the way straight to it. Next to it is the Hiroshima Museum of Art. The design of the miniature garden is very enjoyable. There are bridges and viewing pavilions around the main pool. The scenery changes with the angle of view. Occasionally I met couples who came here to take wedding photos. There is also a traditional Chinese medicine garden in the garden. Maple trees are not small. In autumn, the red leaves are very beautiful. Special recommendation.
One of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen. They incorporated all the land elements of Japan into this garden and it's well worth the visit. Pick your time wisely as it can get VERY busy mid day. We went an hour before closing and found it to be quite the nice way to end a day of touring. The most spectacular part of this is just how removed the city feels once you're inside the property. They have onsite tea bushes and if you come at the right time, you can watch them pick/prepare fresh tea and taste it. A great time indeed! The fish pond was one of the best I'd ever seen as well... some of the biggest (meaning HUGE) coy fish I'd ever seen.
On the outside of the city lie the Shukkeien Garden, it holds an almost zen feeling about it. Wether it is to escape the hustle and bustle of the city or admire bonsai trees, the Garden has everything to offer. It is a nice place to go to take a break from everything, reflect on travels and just admire the beauty.
The courtyard was built by Hiroshima's owners during the Edo period in Japan, which obviously borrowed the courtyard style of the south of the Yangtze River in China. There are also many miniature landscapes of famous scenic spots. In the courtyard, pavilions, pavilions and bridges are running water. It's beautiful.
