Yoshokan (豫章館)

4.0

Historical Monument

This archetypical samurai residence was built in 1869 by Ito Sukeyori, lord of Obi Domain. The residence was named after a large, several-hundred-year-old camphor tree on the grounds. A yakuimon gate stands at the entrance, and the large grounds are occupied by a main residence, sukiya-zukuri-style teahouse, zosha servants' quarters and storehouse, and kura storehouse. The residence is said to have been one of the most prominent of the samurai residences around Obi Castle. The rock garden sprawling on the south side of the residence was created in the samurai, bugaku-ryu style. The famous garden is one of the best in the entire Kyushu region both in terms of its size and superb state of preservation.

          An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
