Yokokan Garden名勝 養浩館庭園

Other Historic Site/Building

Yokokan was the Fukui feudal lord’s Matsudaira Family villa and was called the “Osensui Residence” during the Edo period. It had a Japanese strolling pond garden with a large pond at its center. Various ingenuities have been assimilated into the garden and it is considered that the view from around the banks of the pond and the view from within the residence were taken into consideration. The sukiya zukuri style (in the style of a tea ceremony house) of building called the “Ochaya” located on the east of the pond plays a central role in this building. You can have green tea and sweets at “Otsukiminoma”, and you can spend your time leisurely while enjoying the scenery with Japanese Iris being reflected in the pond.

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
