Ohana and Syotoen Garden

 

Ohana is listed on National Scenic Landmark, was built in 1697 
as the villa of the Fourth Lord Tachibana Akitora.
At that time the region was called Hanabatake (Field of flower), 
so the villa was named Ohana (Flower).
The garden itself spread out over 3300 square meters and is 
laid out in such a way as to evoke the image of Matsushima in 
Sendai. It was extensively renovated in 1908 to 1910.
There are around 280 pines within the garden 1500 stones 
and 14 stone lanterns.
From October to March the pond is host to a flock of wild ducks.
