Suizen-ji Joju-en Garden (Suizenji Park)水前寺成趣園(水前寺公園)

4.0

Botanical Garden

This strolling garden has been noted as one of Japan's Places of Scenic Beauty as well as a Historic Site. Construction of the garden was started by Lord Hosokawa Tadatoshii, who was the first Hosokawa lord of the Higo province and Kumamoto, and would continue for three generations. The large 10,000 square meter lake in the garden is filled with water from the Aso spring. The park opens at 7:30 AM from March to October and at 8:30 AM from November to February and a morning stroll is highly recommended. Horseback archery events are held in the spring and fall and during the summer Noh theater performances are held by fire light. Entrance to the park is a three-minute walk from the Suizenji Park stop on the Kumamoto streetcar.

Review of Suizenji Jojuen Garden

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/01/22 Average
Cane here in the morning and was not crowded. There is fake Mt Fuji and many bonzai trees. The cherry trees and plum trees were not blooming when we were here.
Reviewed:2020/01/22 Very little to see
This garden looked like it has passed its hay day. The landscaping is outdated and not much care is given. Best spot is to go to the macha tea house and enjoy the panoramic view.

Entrance fee 400...
Reviewed:2019/12/24 Lovely Japanese Garden
Rats....my tourist guide planning is out....we reached this place 15minutes before closing time...BUT given sufficient time, the rating will be higher

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
