Y2J Tour : Sengan-en

There is a Japanese house you can walk around.  It was the house of the local Lord.

You can sit and have tea and a biscuit.  The view in the picture above is what you can see when you are seated.

These two women give tours of the house.

This is a water jug at the house, water continously is pouring out of it.

The Lord took some cats with him to Korea, when he was on a campaign.  Some of them died when he was there and he made this shrine for them on his return.

View from behind the garden on the way to the top of the gardens.  A not very popular walk, but some nice views when you get there.  It is also not well marked.
