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.
