Ritsurin Garden Ritsurin Garden Ritsurin Garden

Ritsurin Garden was landscaped for Edo Era daimyo (feudal lords) over the course of a hundred years, reaching its present design in 1745. Designated a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, this spacious garden features six ponds and thirteen landscaped hills. At Ritsurin Garden it is said the scenery changes with every step, a characteristic called “ippo ikkei.” Relax with a bowl of matcha (powdered green tea) at Kikugetsu-tei teahouse while you take in the picturesque landscape, and afterward marvel at the intricate beauty of Sanuki folk crafts on display at the Sanuki Mingeikan Folk Craft Museum. You can also enjoy a ride on a Japanese boat.
