Chofu Garden

Japan, 752-0986 8-11 Kuromon-Higashimachi, Chofu, Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture

Chofu Garden was once the site of the family residence of Nishi Yukinaga, a high-ranking vassal to the head of the Mori clan, during Japan’s Edo era. Situated on the ridge of a low-lying mountain, the focus of the garden’s 31,000㎡ grounds is its pond, surrounding which are a tea house, drawing room and summer house, and it retains its tranquil atmosphere to this day. Chofu Garden is also a natural beauty hot-spot, featuring a variety of plant-life including Lotus, Cherry blossom, Pine, Rhododendron, Sweet Osmanthus, Maple and Japanese Iris, as well as boasting a waterfall and a brook flowing towards the pond. Whatever the season, the garden’s indisputable beauty and calm make it well worth visiting.
