This is the garden which Shimazu Mitsuhisa built as a separate residence in 1658. It is characterized by magnificent landscapes that likens Mt. Sakurajima to a garden hill and the Kinko Bay to a pond, and in 1958 it was designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty of the country. In the garden are crane lanterns which are said to be the first gas lamps in Japan, and cultural assets such as reverberatory furnaces registered as World Heritage sites as “Sites of Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution”. It will take about two hours to wander around the garden.
