About Shinsenkyo

Shinsenkyō is a constellation of landscaped gardens and cultural facilities, conceived and realized by Okada Mokichi between 1944 and 1953. The work was carried out overcoming the turmoil and difficulties Japan was experiencing. Registered as a site of national scenic beauty in March 2021, it includes the bold rock garden Sekiraku-en, the moss garden with lush green velvet carpets under scarlet curtains of maple leaves, and the bamboo garden that leads to the museum main building. Architecturally, it boasts the Registered Tangible Cultural Property Shinzansō (former holiday villa of Fujiyama Raita) as well as residence Kanzantei, cultural hall Nikkōden, and tea house Sangetsu-an.
