Mifuneyama Rakuen御船山楽園

Botanical Garden

Because it is so similar to Tosen (ships of Old China), Mount Mifune-yama is also sometimes called Karasen-yama. Mifuneyama Park is located at the foot of the western side of the mountain. Shigeyoshi Nabeshima, lord of the Takeo clan spent three years landscaping this area to build a villa here. In the spring, 2,000 cherry trees and 200,000 azalea flowers come into bloom. It is a sight to behold. Under the blue sky, the colorful azalea flowers spread out like a beautiful patchwork quilt, but when they are lit up at night, the scenery is transformed into something truly magnificent.

          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.
