Seasonal sights of exceptional beauty

Tokugawaen Garden is built on the former mansion premises of Tokugawa Mitsutomo, the second lord of what was once Owari Province, constructed in 1695 as his personal retreat. The total area constitutes 2.3 hectares and features a Japanese garden designed around a pond as well as a grove planted on a landscape of various changes in elevation. The design packs in large boulders arranged around the garden as well as an artificial hill, Ozone Waterfall, Tiger's Tail River, Ryusen Lake, and Peony Garden and Iris Garden, which work to represent the Kiso Mountain Range and other natural landscapes and scenes.
The new spring leaves work in concert with peonies and irises to color the garden, and in fall, varieties of Japanese maples dye the area in autumn hues. Come at any time of the year for seasonal sights of exceptional beauty.
