Constructed in the ?Momoyama style?, the garden recreates celebrated waterways and mountain landscape from the ?Tokai line?, one of the major travel route during the Edo Era. The beauty of this garden is not to be missed. Then transfer to Amakusa via ?Five Bridges of Amakusa? , these are five road bridges at the south tip of Japan, linking the Kyushu mainland (Kumamoto Prefecture) and the Amakusa Islands.
