A historic daimyo garden that has been passed down since the Edo period

It is a daimyo garden built by Nagaakira Asano, the first feudal lord of the Hiroshima domain, as a garden for a villa. It is adjacent to the Hiroshima Prefectural Museum of Art. Shukkeien is said to have been created in imitation of China's world-famous scenic spot, "West Lake," because it has a magnificent view of the mountain river, the state of Kyoto Raku, and the scenery of Miyama in the garden. It was named. Large and small islands float in the pond dug in the center of the garden, and it is also called a strolling garden because you can enjoy it while walking around the well-arranged valleys, bridges, and tea rooms. The garden is full of nature, and you can enjoy seasonal flowers throughout the year.
