The view of Shuhekien Garden is excellent from the first reception hall you pass through, and you can admire the garden while enjoying match green tea and sweets on the terrace. The other garden, Yuseien Garden, has velvety, mystical moss, and Ojogokuraku-in Temple, located in the garden, also has a reputation for being absolutely beautiful.
