Chofu Garden (長府庭園)

This is a garden in Shimonoseki City. It is the site of the residence of Nishi Yukinaga, one of the chief vassals of the Chofu Mori Domain. The study building, the tea house and Japanese-style gazebo remain set around the pond at the center. The warehouses scattered around the garden are now shops that sell famous confectionery of Shimonoseki and accessories, as well as exhibit and sell art, and offer tourist information. Visitors are able to freely explore the large garden while enjoying the nature.

I toured Shimonoseki for a day and Chofu Garden was the first stop. My tour had like 1.5 hours here which I feel is to much. I think an hour is more then enough time here at the Garden. It is a very...

JR下関駅からバスを利用して行きました。庭園には孫文が長府に来住した時に渡した中国古蓮を育成して発芽させた「孫文蓮」がありました。天気が悪かったですが、落ち着いた雰囲気の庭園で良かったですね○

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
