Tenshaen Garden


A visually stunning garden with links to the Date clan
The Tenshaen Garden was built for the retirement of Munetada Date, the seventh feudal lord of the Uwajma domain. It was named after a Kanshi (Japanese poetry written in Chinese) by Masamune Date, describing the ideal way to live out a life of retirement. The garden delights visitors with seasonal flowers. A particular must-see is the arched bridge lined with white wisteria trellises known as the “ascending wisterias”. Another feature of the garden is the many varieties of bamboo surrounding a pond, associated with the “sparrow and bamboo” crest of the Date clan.
