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.
