Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kumamoto Prefecture / Kumamoto / Suizenji Jojuen Garden
With a lush rolling landscape and fresh clear waters filled with colorful carp, Suizenji Jojuen Garden remains a welcoming sanctuary and authentic example of a traditional Japanese garden. Originally constructed in 1636, the gardens gradually grew to include the Izumi Shrine, a Noh theater, and Kokin-Denju-no-Ma teahouse. The landscaping is said to represent the 53 stations of "Tokaido," a well-known route between Edo and Kyoto. Stroll through delicate foliage, across hills and along the edge of ponds, observing the beauty of the miniature Mount Fuji, a landmark at the heart of the park.

Beautiful traditional Japanese garden where you can walk around and enjoy its serenity dating back to 1632. It costs ¥400 to enter for adults and takes about 2 hours to walk around the garden grounds. There are 20 monuments and exhibits to view inside the garden. It was very peaceful here and I recommend you visit for a Zen experience.
This garden wasn’t in our original plan but we have a half-day spared and it’s a great weather so we visited here. It’s a pretty nice Japanese garden and it seems to be prettier when during cherry blossom. However, it’s a calm place and can have a nice walk around. The dessert right in front of the entrance is worth a try! You can come visit while you have time!
