Travel Guide - Oyaku-en Garden


Oyaku-en Garden was originally the site of the Aizu clan’s mansion. The name "Oyaku-en (medical herb garden)" came from the fact that the second lord of Aizu, Hoshina Masatsune, planted medical herbs here in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). There are still 400 kinds of medical herbs grown in the garden.
Oyaku-en Garden contains lovely ponds, rustic tea arbors, and a medicinal herb garden. At Choyokaku, a building where Princess Chichibu stayed, you can taste the black tea and desserts that she loved.
