About Shukkeien

Shukkeien was built by the lord of Hiroshima. It is in the typical style of the Edo period and is said to be constructed based on the architecture of the West Lake in China. The view of mountains and rivers, the spirit of Kyoto and the elegance of remote mountains are condensed in the courtyard, hence it gets the name "miniature landscape garden" (Shukkeien). There is a pond in the center of the park, in which there are small lands of different sizes, valleys, small bridges and pavilions cleverly arranged, and it is full of fun to watch around. Therefore, it is also called a parade garden. There are flowers in the courtyard all year round, and its charm is endless.

    Shrinkage Garden is a small Japanese-style courtyard. It is said that it is the private residence of the vassal owner. The name of the landscape is very elegant. The Qingfeng Pavilion, Miaochi Pool and so on need to buy admission tickets here. Although the garden is small, it will take a lot of time to turn around.

    Cherry blossom season, night cherry exhibition. Tickets are not expensive, only about 200 yen. Very recommended! There are many kinds of cherry blossoms in the garden, and the lighting effect is excellent! Compared with cherry appreciation in the daytime, don't have the same flavor.

    The miniature garden, as its name implies, is a miniature version of a collection of places of interest and imitation. But there is also a saying that it got its name because it imitated and narrowed the West Lake scenery in Hangzhou, China. The center of the miniature garden is the watering pond, which is dotted with dozens of islands, big and small, surrounded by hills, and matched with bridges, streams, pavilions, tea rooms and so on. The bridge across the Hongqiao in the middle of the Guanmiao Pool has typical Japanese architectural features, small radian and delicate. The two main buildings of the miniature garden, Qingfeng Hall and Mingyuan Hall, are absolutely the central building of the garden. They are traditional and harmony-style buildings with ancient bark roofs. The area of the miniature garden is not large, and it is even smaller and elegant against the backdrop of the high-rise buildings around it. There are Koi carp and turtle in the irrigation pond. Koi carp is the largest size I have ever seen. As long as someone feeds, the scene can hardly be seen directly, and even the most beautiful and noble animals still have the essence of "birds die for food".

    The miniature garden is a typical Japanese garden. It is said that it is named for many famous scenic spots imitated in the courtyard. It is not known which scenic spots are imitated. It's very close to Hiroshima Station and the traffic is very convenient.

    Hiroshima's scenic courtyard, facing Hiroshima City, all the way straight to it. Next to it is the Hiroshima Museum of Art. The design of the miniature garden is very enjoyable. There are bridges and viewing pavilions around the main pool. The scenery changes with the angle of view. Occasionally I met couples who came here to take wedding photos. There is also a traditional Chinese medicine garden in the garden. Maple trees are not small. In autumn, the red leaves are very beautiful. Special recommendation.

    The courtyard was built by Hiroshima's owners during the Edo period in Japan, which obviously borrowed the courtyard style of the south of the Yangtze River in China. There are also many miniature landscapes of famous scenic spots. In the courtyard, pavilions, pavilions and bridges are running water. It's beautiful.

    It's about fifteen minutes'walk from Hiroshima City. The entrance is plain. It's 260 yen. It's not expensive. The garden has been specially designed, and the greening is very good. The air is fresh, the environment is quiet, and the loitering is very good.

    The miniature garden is a typical Japanese-style courtyard. It is said that it is named for its imitation of many famous scenic spots. It is not known where the imitation is. I don't know much about gardening art. It's good to just look at the scenery. It's good to take photos from any angle. It's not far from Hiroshima City and Hiroshima Station. It's within walking distance.

    Hiroshima scenic spot, Japanese courtyard. Villas formerly built by the Asano family (Hiroshima vassal). There are many famous scenic spots imitated in the courtyard, which gather the epitome of the beautiful scenery and create scenery around the pond water.
