Ritsurin Garden

Japan

Ritsurin Garden is a traditional strolling-style daimyo (feudal lord) garden. The garden received national designation in 1953 as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty. Landscaping began in 1642 and is said to have taken 100 years to complete. In the garden are six ponds and 13 artificial hills called tsukiyama. The garden, set against the backdrop of the mountain Shiun-zan, is evocative of a Japanese painting.
