Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum

Matcha

Dec 8, 2016

The museum has interesting art exhibitions, but within it lies a hidden treasure – the 400 year old Shukukeien garden!

This Japanese landscape garden was created in 1620 by Asano Nagaakira – the then ruler of this region – as an extension for his villa.The garden is supposed to be a replica of Lake Xihu, a resort found in Hangzhou, China.

Take your time to have a leisurely stroll across the bridges and along the little houses. There is also a beautiful lake in the center of the garden. Here, different flowers bloom during each of the four seasons so you can enjoy beautiful scenery all year round.

I couldn’t stop taking pictures in the garden. There are just so many picture-perfect moments!

Admissions to the garden are: 260 yen for adults, 150 yen for high school and university students, and 100 yen for junior high and elementary students.
