Mifuneyama Rakuen (御船山楽園)


Botanical Garden

"Due to its resemblance in shape to a Chinese boat called a ""karasen"" in Japanese, Mt. Mifune is also called Mt. Karasen. This park is situated on the mountain's western side. The park was created over a three year period as part of a villa for Nabeshima Shigeyoshi, then lord of Takeo Domain. The park is incredibly beautiful in spring when some 2,000 cherry trees and 200 thousand azaleas on the grounds bloom in profusion. The sight of colorful azaleas sprawling like a patchwork quilt under azure sky is stunning, but the scenery created when the park is illuminated at night is also magical and exceptional."

Review of Mifuneyama Rakuen

Reviewed:2018/05/04 Beautiful in many seasons
Been here several times, most recently a couple days ago. While most of the azaleas have fallen, the wisteria were still quite beautiful.
Enjoy this venue year-round through spring, fall, and summer...
Reviewed:2018/01/04 Poetic at day - Marvellous at night
From Takeo Onsen station, exit at entrance B and took the bus to Ureshino. Get off at Mifuneyama Rakuen and walked up the road until you see the ticket booth inside the souvenir shop and the vendors...
Reviewed:2017/10/07 Visited this Garden at night for a special event - Shishedo - A forest where Gods Live.
Absolutely sensational event!!! Combination of dim lighting, spot lighting, movement, sound, laser projection and the fact that it takes place in a mountain that is far removed from any visible...

          Saga Areas


          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
