Nemunoki-no-Niwa Park

Travel Guide - Nemunoki-no-Niwa Park


Nemunoki-no-Niwa Park used to be a part of the Shoda Residence, the parent's home of Empress Michiko.
The place opened to the public as a park in 2004.

The park's name "Nemunoki-no-Niwa (Garden of Silk Tree)" came from a Japanese Tanka poem written by the Empress when she was a high school student.
The rose "Princess Michiko" is also planted in the park in tribute to the Empress.
