Nara_Isuien Garden

I am an English guide in charge of
Isuien Garden.


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.


Isuien Garden(Nara ,located on the west of Todaiji temple)
Isuien Garden has been designated as a place of scenic beauty which consists of two types of gardens designed in two different time periods. One is the Front Garden designed in the 1670’s in oder to enjoy Sencha, steeped green tea,the another is the Back Garden designed in the early 20th century in order to enjoy tea ceremony and gathering for composing poems .Despite the location where it is close to the famous Todaiji temple, you will find how the garden is secluded from the outside world. You can appriciate a typical Japanese traditional garden while feeling serenity. And also you will appreciate the design which you can command a view of Wakakusayama, Kasugaokuyama and as well as the Nandaimon gate of Todaiji temple in the background.
When you visit Todaiji temple, Nara Park and Kasugataisha Shrine, you should definitely visit this garden.

The tour is mainly excluded for the guests passing by or staying in Kobe or Osaka.
To get to the garden: It is about a 15minites walk from Kintetsu Nara station, or take a bus from the station, get off Kencyohigashi and additionally a 3-minute walk.
