Yusentei Park


A historical park with a Chisen Kaiyu styled Japanese garden, a typical Japanese garden with a pond in its the center. It was built in the mid-Edo period as a house for Kuroda Tsugutaka, the 6th family head of the Kuroda family. In the park there are lots of old and large trees such as beech, yew plum pines, fragrant olives, and camellias; you can feel the peaceful expansiveness of this wide space as you gaze at the garden from the reception hall with a corridor in size of 17.5 tatami mats. ”Yusentei” was named after the following poem written by Kuze Michinatsu: ’A retreat built to accompany the gushing spring water does not know unbearable heat.’ There are two tea rooms on the premises: Josui-an and Shozan-an, both of which are names relating to the Kuroda family.
