Japanese Garden at Morioka Central Public Hall

Travel Guide - Japanese Garden at Morioka Central Public Hall


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.
