Asano Nagaakira began construction of this garden for his villa the year after he was appointed as the Daimyo of Hiroshima in 1619. The job of creating the garden was left to the tea master Ueda Soko. There is a theory that the garden is said to be comprised of many picturesque scenes created in miniature, or that it is modeled on the West Lake in Hangzhou in China. It was designated as a National Site of Scenic Beauty in 1940 and it is also famous for its cherry blossoms and plum blossoms.
