Suizenji Jojuen is a traditional Japanese landscape garden that was laid out in the late 1600s. Due to its enormous size of 64 hectares, it is often referred to as Suizenji Park. Originally it was planned by Prince Hosokawa Tadatoshi to enjoy tea there in peace Its name comes from a former Buddhist temple there, while the garden now houses a Shinto shrine in which the Hosokawa family is buried.
