SpotSengan-en

The garden, which is also called “Iso-teien,” was built as a villa of the Satsuma’s 19th feudal lord, Shimazu Mitsuhisa (1616-1695) in 1658. Designed in “borrowed-landscape” style, it presents a spacious garden with views of Mt. Sakurajima and Kagoshima Bay rather than that of artificial hills and ponds. A residence in the garden offers an exhibition of items reproducing the lifestyle of the Shimazu family when the garden was built. Enjoy strolling in the wonderful garden and try “jambo-mochi” rice cakes, the specialty of the garden’s rest house.
