≪Autumn Leaves Viewing Spot≫ Higo Hosokawa Garden
Vibrant red and yellow foliage colors the historic Japanese garden
At the final years of the Edo period, this place has been used as a suburban residence of Hosokawa Etchu, the feudal load of Higo Kumamoto 540,000 koku.
Taking advantage of the height difference of the natural plateau, the circuit style garden around the pond have sloping forests and narrow streams with spring water so that you can see the varied landscape.
The “Shoseikaku” in the garden was restored in 2016, and most of the interior is now open to the public.
In autumn the Japanese maple “Yamamomiji” and wax tree leaves turn red around the pond, and the landscape reflects like a mirror on the surface of the water, from the end of November you can also see the snow hanging pine.
