Rokkaen (former Seiroku Moroto residence)六華苑(旧諸戸清六邸)

Historical Monument

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.

Review of Rokkaen

Reviewed:2015/04/11 Building in both Western and Japanese style
Building in blue, with an entrance fee of $300 yen, is in both Western and Japanese style. I enjoyed sitting inside the house, looking at the garden and listening to water flowing.

最近よく映画やドラマのロケとして使われている桑名市を代表する建物です。2018年のNHKドラマ吉岡秀佳さんの金田一耕助『悪魔が来りて笛を吹く』のメインロケ地にもなっていましたね。

子どもはあまり興味がなかったようでした。近くの公園の方が楽しかったようです。

Mie Main Areas

Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
