Yuugayama-enti garden has just open to the public at the end of May, 2020.
It’s located in the south of Ukimido and Sagi-ike pond in Nara City. It has about 1.3 hectares of land.
The place was used to be a second home of Mr. Yamaguchi, who was a banker in Osaka during Meiji and Taisho era. He was also a master of tea ceremony.
Nara Prefectural government restored this place into a Japanese garden and built a tea ceremony house in this property.
Built in the slope of Yuugayama, the garden has a pond, a cascade and the bamboo grove.
The stepping-stones, stone bridges and stone stairs make you a round tour in the garden.
The Japanese garden is free to enter between 9：00 and 22：00 (enter by 21：30 is necessary)
The tea house “Taku-an” is available with the pre-booking and the fee.
The entrance of the garden faces to Ukimido.
Why don’t you to visit the garden after Nara Park and Ukimido?
