Botanical Garden

The 10th lord of the Kishu domain, Tokugawa Harutomi, constructed this Daimyo garden located in Nishihama, Wakayama Prefecture. It’s a circuit-style garden, rare in Japan, with a pond that drew in water from the ocean. You’ll find pine trees and various seasonal trees scattered about, and the garden layout across the straight Mitsuhashi Bridge that utilizes the natural scenery of Mt. Tenjin and Mt. Takozushi is enchanting. Be sure to visit the Yosuitei teahouse, the Omotesenke tea ceremony room, and the relocated Tokugawa residence “Minatogoten.” This garden has also been designated one of Japan’s Places of Scenic Beauty.

          Wakayama Main Areas


          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
