    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Higashi-ku Tokugawachou 1001
    This is a Japanese Chisen-kaiyushiki-teien style garden (a stroke-style garden around a big pond) in Nagoya City. The garden got its start in 1695 when Tokugawa Mitsutomo, the second feudal lord of the Owari clan, moved to the “Ozone Yashiki” retirement villa, the construction of which he had personally overseen. The garden is a condensed representation of Japan’s nature with clear streams flowing down into a central pond symbolizing the ocean, arranged with hills, a peony garden and iris patch that all combine to produce a beautiful landscape. There is also the Tokugawa Art Museum and a French restaurant that looks out over the garden filled with flowers in all four seasons and which is a lovely place to appreciate the new leaves in spring and the changing colors of the leaves in autumn.

    The garden is closed on Mondays, but the area with the convention center is pretty interesting and worth a visit. We came back the next day to visit the garden. The garden is typical Japanese...

    Aichi Gamagori-shi Kanehiracho Ichinosawa 28-1
    A renowned destination for enjoying bigleaf hydrangea in Katahara Onsen. The area around Hodagaike Pond in the center of the hot spring district is maintained as a bigleaf hydrangea garden and has become a famous sightseeing spot. At the present time, more than 50 thousand hydrangea plants of varying colors and sizes are grown around the pond. The best time to see the hydrangea flowers is from June 1 to 30, and during this time a hydrangea festival is also held in the area. Special busses operate during the festival and a variety of events like haiku recitations and rare hydrangea exhibitions are held. At night, the area is lit up, giving visitors the chance to enjoy the beauty of the hydrangea in a way different from that of the day.

Aichi Main Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
