JGarden Description:This garden was built as a mountain retreat for the head of a zaibatsu, Hara Tomitaro. It is a stroll garden that was built in two sections, now separated into an inner and outer garden. The inner garden is known for its classical architecture and stone work collected from across the archipelago. The main pavilion, known as Rinshunkaku, and is particularly well appointed. 




Good people of old
Looked oft at Mount Yoshino
And said that it was good.
Good people of our time,
Take a good look
At the good mountain of Yoshino!
Good people,
Take a good look!!
