Suizenji Jojuen Garden, Kumamoto

4.0
#1 of 15 in Parks in Kumamoto
With a lush rolling landscape and fresh clear waters filled with colorful carp, Suizenji Jojuen Garden remains a welcoming sanctuary and authentic example of a traditional Japanese garden. Originally constructed in 1636, the gardens gradually grew to include the Izumi Shrine, a Noh theater, and Kokin-Denju-no-Ma teahouse. The landscaping is said to represent the 53 stations of "Tokaido," a well-known route between Edo and Kyoto. Stroll through delicate foliage, across hills and along the edge of ponds, observing the beauty of the miniature Mount Fuji, a landmark at the heart of the park.

  • It's been decades! Suizenji Park. It takes about 30 minutes by tram from Kumamoto Station, but it's 170 yen. There were a lot of people who rented yukata, and spent time in yukata. I was lucky to see a white suppon, but unfortunately I couldn't see it (^_^;)

  • It is not too wide, and it is a large garden not too narrow. We entered the park at the same time as the opening of the park at 7:30. Mt. Fuji was being repaired due to the earthquake.

  • Super peaceful place to visit. Remember to show your tram pass for 10% discount for entrance. Lotsa signboard in English explaining the structure and history. Definately worth a visit.
  • Had a wonderful time strolling around Suizenji Park during our camper trip. Nearby parking was no problem, even for our bigger sized vehicle. (parking lot used by tour-busses). @yapfukuoka
