Rokkaen (former Seiroku Moroto residence) (六華苑(旧諸戸清六邸))
This facility is a 10-minute walk from the city circular bus Tamachi bus stop from the bus terminal at Kuwana Station's East Exit. This important cultural property is made up of a western-style building designed by the British architect Josiah Conder (1852-1920) who also designed the Rokumeikan (Deer Cry Pavilion), and a Japanese-style building with a Japanese-style garden with a path around a central pond. It was designated as a National Important Cultural Property in 1997 as a precious building representing the Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1926) periods. You can enjoy the garden which is famous in Japan for this beauty throughout the year and its charming architecture. In addition to tsukigama (monthly tea ceremony), flower arrangement exhibitions and concerts, it holds courses on the small hand drum for nagauta hayashi music and tea ceremony.
