Place of Scenic Beauty, Yokokan Garden

Special offers available!

This garden used to be the second home of the Matsudaira Clan, the ruling feudal lords of Fukui. The strolling garden with a central pond and the Sukiya-zukuri style buildings around it are worth seeing. It is one of the gardens representative of the mid-Edo Period and, being a superb garden with a present layout which has remained unchanged from the original drawings, it was designated as one of the country's places of scenic beauty.
