Travel Guide - Rikugi-en Garden

InformationInformation

Rikugi-en Garden was constructed by Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu in 1702. The garden was made in a place which the 5th Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi gave to him in 1695. It took 7 years to complete the garden.
Rikugi-en is a typical Daimyo (feudal lord) garden dating back to the Edo era (1603 – 1868). The garden is a traditional Japanese garden of “Kaiyushiki-teien”, a landscape style with artificial hills and fountains, exquisite with the tastes of Waka (Japanese classical poetry).
