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

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
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.

          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.
