Ikeda family’s garden

Ikeda Family Japanese Garden is a unique modern garden developed from the end of the Meiji period to the beginning of the Taisho period. The garden with an area of approximately 42,000 m2 was designed in hexagon to resemble the carapace of a turtle. It is fascinating to stroll around the modern garden designed by Yasuhei Nagaoka, thinking about the history of the Ikeda family who contributed to the development of the local community. The place formerly owned by the Ikeda family, one of the greatest landlords in the Tohoku region. Please enjoy the great combination of a garden that features a path around a pond (“Chikansei-kaiyuu” style) and a white Western-style house with a height of 4 meters and a large Yukimi Japanese lantern.
