Shukkeien Garden (縮景園)

Botanical Garden

A garden located in Naka Ward, Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture that was chosen as one of the top 100 of Japan’s historic parks and designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty. Shukkeien was created in 1620 by Ueda Shigeyasu, a high-ranking retainer in the service of the Asano Clan who was also a renowned master of tea ceremony, to serve as a villa for Asano feudal lords. It is said that the garden is a condensed version modeled on the scenic beauty of China’s West Lake and the garden’s name is derived from this meaning “condensed scenery garden”. The garden is picturesque with an island floating in the pond, mountains, valleys, and elegant tea ceremonial houses. In “Sensuitei” near the entrance you can enjoy matcha green tea and light refreshments.

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
