Genkyu-en
The construction of the garden had started in 1677 and completed in 1679, Genkyu-en, aka Keyaki Goten, was a villa of Hikone Castle. It is designated as a National Scenery Beauty. At present, the garden is called Genkyu-en and the building is called Rakurakuen. Genkyu-en is a stroll-garden with a central pond with 9 bridges over islands and promontories in the pond. The best season to visit is fall -- red and yellow leaves reflected on the pond’s surface are magnificent. Especially the annual Floodlighting Show in fall is worth a trip.
