Morioka Central Public Hall was used to be a ruling Nambu Clan’s villa during the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) and the Taisho Period (1912 - 1926).
The exquisite Japanese strolling garden has been preserved since then.
The garden is beautiful especially when the cherry blossoms are in bloom in the spring or the leaves change colors in the autumn.
There are also a teahouse called "Hakuho-an" moved from the 19th Japanese Prime Minister Takashi Hara's villa and a building called "Seifu-kaku", where the Emperor Meiji visited during his trip to the Tohoku region, moved from Shisho-en Garden.
