Shukkeien Garden

Shukkeien Garden was originally built in 1620 by Ueda Soko, a renowned master of the tea ceremony, as a villa garden for Asano Nagaakira, a feudal lord of Hiroshima. The garden’s name literally means contracted scenic beauty, which is said to have been modeled after Xi Hu (West Lake) in Hangzhou, China. In 1940 (Showa 15), it was designated as a National Scenic Spot and famous for its beautiful plum trees and cherry blossoms.
