It's not a huge property. So, you can visit this in an hour or two and see the whole thing. It's very beautiful and worth the visit!

This is a really nice peaceful place to have a walk around. There is a small fee to enter but it's well worth it. You walk around a route that takes around 45 minutes to slowly walk around. There is a big lake in the middle that you walk around, crossing many small bridges on the way. If you look... More

Easy to get to by tram, this is my favourite garden in all my travels. I will never forget the first time I saw the photo of it after the bomb was dropped. Standing in this now magnificent place, the only thing you would recognise is the little bridge. To me, this lovely place truly shows the determination of the... More

We visited the Shukkei-en Garden directly after touring the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. Having been told that many of the victims of the bomb had fled to the garden, died there and their ashes were buried there made the time in this beautiful place even more touching. The garden is exquisite and tranquil. A visit is the perfect way to... More

A beautiful Japanese garden in an historical city, adjacent to the Hiroshima Art Museum, and a block away from Sadako Sasaki's (of the thousand crane and Children's Peace Monument origin)elementary school.

Absolutely incredible garden in the heart of Hiroshima. Recommended especially after a day at the A-bomb dome and museum, to fully appreciate the resilience and beauty of Hiroshima and its people.

A lovely little piece of tranquility in a big city - its a lovely place to look around and just take a moment to absorb all of the history of Hiroshima. There is a stone bridge over the lake around which there are beautiful gardens to wander around. If you clap by the waters edge of the stone bridge -... More

Visited in mid-Dec when there was a transition of red maple leaf and snow. Nice garden in Hiroshima city and it was pleasant to stroll through the park with birds, ponds and very large carps set in Japanese landscape. Beautiful flowers would be in full bloom in spring and summer. Opening hours: Apr-Sept 9:00- 18:00 Oct-Mar 9:00- 17:00 Entrance fee... More
