Yusen-tei Garden

Travel Guide - Yusen-tei Garden


Yusen-tei Garden was originally built in 1754 as a villa for a feudal lord Kuroda Tsugutaka.
Then the garden was rebuilt into a classic Japanese-style garden and opened to the public.
Visitors can enjoy a great view of the garden from a large hall of the main building constructed in the early Showa period (1926 - 1989).
