Places to visit
Isuien Garden consists of two sections: the front garden constructed in the Edo Period, and the rear garden added in the Meiji era. These two gardens are divided by a water stream. The rear garden is known for its borrowed landscape (shakkei) that incorporates the scenery of Todaiji Temple’s Nandaimon Gate and mountains, including Mt. Wakakusa, Mt. Kasuga and Mt. Mikasa.
The Neiraku Museum located in the garden, includes an exhibition of ancient Asian arts.
