Yuka-en Garden

Yuka-en Garden Hiroshima 渝華園

Along with Shukkei-en Garden, Hiroshima has another lovely garden in Yuka-en. Yuka-en was constructed in 1992 to celebrate five years of official friendship with the Chinese city of Chongqing in Sichuan Province. A Japanese garden was laid out in Chongqing, while Yuka-en was constructed with the help of Chinese gardeners.

Yuka-en Garden is a walled garden with key-hole style gates, courtyards and sloping tile-roofed gazebos and pavilions set around a central lake.

Yuka-en is known for its beautiful Chinese plum and cherry blossoms in spring.
