Tokugawaen Garden

Tokugawaen waterfall

A Japanese garden with walkways winding around a central pond symbolizing the ocean. The second lord, Mitsutomo of the Owari Tokugawa family, settled here to retire in 1695. It has a chisen kaiyuushiki (pond and promenade) Japanese garden, typical of daimyo (feudal lord) gardens.

The waterfall and stream utilize the difference in elevation to create an enjoyable, dynamic landscape. The park was once a residence of the Owari Tokugawa clan, the vestiges of the old samurai manor can still be seen in the black gate at the entrance. Mid to late April is the best time to view peonies; June for Japanese irises, and late November for autumn leaves.
