    Rikugi-en Garden

    Rikugi-en is a “daimyo (feudal lord) garden” created during the Edo era. Yoshiyasu Yanagisawa, an advisor of the fifth Tokugawa shogun Tsunayosi, designed it to express the universe of waka (Japanese poetry).

    The garden is also known for an elegant and majestic weeping cherry tree (about 15 meters high and 20 meters wide). Every blossoming season, the renowned tree is lit up and shows its graceful figure to please many visitors.
