Kyushu Travel Guide

Ohana and Shotoen Garden


Listed on National Scenic Landmark


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 or 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.
