Gyorakuen Garden


Sesshu Toyo, an artist monk from the Muromachi period (1333-1573), is said to have utilized the landscape artistry techniques that he learned in China when he constructed Gyorakuen. Using the naturally sloping terrain, he drew water springing from between rocks to a pond and made an island and three rock bridges there to symbolize a turtle being held by a crane. He also arranged azaleas and old pines around the pond. Truly a place to relish the beauty of every season, the garden gets many visitors during the fall foliage season beginning in mid November. Recommended as a souvenir is the Suppon Honey Candy with its unique taste and is full of nutrition!
