Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kagoshima Prefecture / Minamikyushu / Chiran Samurai Residence Garden
Wander around Chiran Samurai Residence Garden, a picturesque manicured environment preserved for over 250 years. Explore what lies behind high, hedge-topped walls, a hidden world steeped in history, unblemished by modern day scenes. Made up of seven gardens, each was designed by gardeners brought in specially from Kyoto in the 17th century, with the intention of the garden being viewed from the houses above. Sadly, this cannot be done, as the houses are still occupied, but you still have the freedom to explore each of the seven individual gardens in your own time, viewing intricately pruned trees and shrubs, and the ancient defensive walls.

Chiran Samurai Residence Garden Reviews
本馬場通りに沿って連なる石垣と生垣が武家時代の風情を感じさせます。見学者が見られる庭園は七か所ですが、どれも非常に手入れが行き届いており、５００円の入園料で採算が取れるのか、少し心配になりました。庭園に花の咲き誇る風景を見たかったのですが、ピンポイントで訪れる観光客には無理かもしれません。また、この時期は暑すぎて、日陰の無い武家屋敷群巡りはちょっと避けた方が良いかもしれません。無料駐車場が近くに... more »Along Honbaba Street, the stone walls and hedges that line the streets make you feel the atmosphere of the Samurai period. There are seven gardens where visitors can be seen, but they are all very well maintained, and I was a little worried about whether the 500 yen entrance fee would be profitable. I wanted to see the flower-blooming scenery in the garden, but it might not be possible for tourists who visit by pinpoint. Moreover, it might be better to avoid the samurai residence group tour without the shade for a moment because it is too hot at this time of year. The location is very good.
静かで美しいお庭。時代をそのまま飛び越えたのかと思うほど当時の趣が残っているように感じました。周辺の武家屋敷群は迷路のようなので歩いていて楽しいです。 more »Quiet and beautiful garden. I felt that the atmosphere of that time remained so much as to think that i had jumped over the times as it was. The surrounding samurai residences are like a maze, so it's fun to walk.
Chiran was a great place to visit. I really enjoyed it. It is definitely worth to go!
