Kyushu Travel Guide

Suizenji-koen Park


Imitated the beautiful scenery of Japan


It is a refined circular garden of Momoyama period style and represents the

53 Stations of the Tokaido Road including Mt. Fuji.


The fresh springs in the garden release clean, cold water, which flows there from Mt. Aso via

underground currents.


In 1636, Tadatoshi, the third Lord of Hosokawa, began its construction as a tea retreat, and he also

built the temple here for Priest Gentaku called Suizenji.


This beautiful Momoyama style garden evolve during the reigns of the fourth and fifth Lords.

In all it took about 80 years to complete.
