Shukkeien (縮景園)

Shukkeien is a Japanese garden located next to the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum. The garden was ordered to be built during the Edo Period in the year 1620 by the the Feudal Lord of Hiroshima at the time, Asano Nagaakira. The design of this historic Japanese garden was made by Ueda Soko, the famous tea ceremony master. In 2020, the garden celebrated its 400th anniversary. The garden is filled with a variety of flowers and trees that bloom in every season of the year, allowing visitors to experience the beauty of Japan’s four seasons. If you visit the park in combination with the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, you can get a discount on both admission fees.
