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.
