The atmospheric Shoun Sanso Garden was created in 1926, and even though it’s famous for its fall colors, in spring the fresh greenery give the garden an entirely different atmosphere, and the energy emanating from the trees can be felt.Inside the garden is the Kimura Tea Ceremony Museum, and visitors can relax and try drinking green tea from tea bowls that are on display at the museum – these are even classified as national treasure level in their quality! There is also seating outside, so you can relax and enjoy your tea under the beautiful fall colors.
