SUIZEN-JI JOJU-EN

The Suizen-Ji Joju-En is a Kaiyuteien*, a type of Japanese garden. In this garden, said to imitate the 53 Stations of the Tokaido Road*, visitors can enjoy this beautiful garden along with its gentle hills and its ponds that resemble lakes. In the northern part of the garden is the Izumi-jinya Shrine where successive generations of the Hosokawa clan are enshrined.

*Kaiyuteien is a type of circular Japanese garden where individuals walk around the garden and appreciate what is in it.
*Tokaido Road was the most important of the five routes of the Edo period, which connected Edo (present day Tokyo) to Kyoto.
