Garden

This park said to be Japan's oldest was created by Matsudaira Sadanobu, who was the lord of the Shirakawa Domain. In addition to being a wise ruler, Matsudaira was a master of the tea ceremony and an excellent gardener. At the Shorakutei tea house, visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery set in front of the backdrop of Mt. Kagami's bamboo thickets. At the Shusuian tea house, it is possible to enjoy the scenery of the Chiyo no Tsutsumi and Mt. Seki. Visitors can also enjoy the seasonal scenery created by the park's 4,000 trees of various sizes representing 59 varieties, its 21,000 shrubs representing 49 varieties, and the ever-changing reflections in the lake. The park can also be used as a venue for traditional cultural activities.

The japanese garden is beautiful, I could have stayed for hours just admiring it.
I felt just alone, me and my soul and its relieving to feel this sometimes. Its good to spend time just thinking...

松平氏の庭園。手入れも行き届いていて美しく、一周散歩するのにはよい。お茶をいただける施設はあるが、今回は利用しなかった。

南湖公園の奥まった場所にひっそりとたたずむ素敵な日本庭園。急に気温が下がったこともあり見学者は我々だけで、ゆっくりと最後の紅葉を楽しんできました。そんなに広いスペースではありませんが、庭中が綺麗にお手入れされており、かつて大名がここで四季折々を楽しんで来たんだなぁと思いを馳せました。見学料理にプラスでお茶と季節の和菓子が頂けるようです。

          Fukushima is a blend of fantastic scenery, delectable sake, and kaleidoscopic colors. This nature-rich prefecture displays its splendor from the hidden Abukuma Cave underground right to the top of its sky-high mountain road, known as the Bandai-Azuma Skyline.
