This large Japanese garden follows the traditional “”Chisenkai-yu”” style, featuring a central pond encircled by a path from which to enjoy the tranquil scenery. Sankeien was designed to look like the mountains and canyons of Hiroshima, and the scenery of the Seto Inland Sea, and is divided into three different zones: a mountain zone, country zone, and ocean zone. Sankeien is also exciting to visit throughout the seasons. In June, 95 kinds of Japanese irises and 10,000 flowering plants come into bloom. Autumn is celebrated with a Maple Festival.
