Isuien Garden is a beautiful, traditional Japanese-style garden. The name Isuien means ‘garden founded on water’. This name is based on the fact that its ponds are watered by the nearby Yoshikigawa River. Isuien is divided into two parts, a front garden and a rear garden, with a number of tea houses scattered throughout its premises. The garden is a perfect blend of nature and manmade gardening. Inside the garden is a museum displaying pottery, seals, mirrors and other artefacts from ancient China and Korea.
