This garden was one of several owned by Asakura Yoshikage, the powerful daimyo of the Echizen province during the Sengoku (Warring States) period. All of these gardens were built in the Ichijoudani. This particular site was built for his mistress, Shôshônotsubone, beginning in 1568. It has an upper and lower level and a large central vertical stone in a 'rock and waterfall' formation. To the left of this composition is another very large 'lotus leaf' stone.
Looking at the residence of Yang Guei-fei
wish I had a man
who'd dig a pond for me
