Genkyu-en Garden is located to the north of Hikone Castle in Shiga Prefecture.
It was the castle lord's garden, made to recreate the famous Eight Views of Omi (in turn modeled on the Chinese "Eight Views of Xiaoxiang").The garden was constructed in the year 1677 by Ii Naoki , the 4th lord of Hikone.
A " Light-up of Autumnal Foliage" is held in the gardens each November, allowing visitors to experience a custom unique to the lord's gardens. Trees in the gardens make themselves up in red and yellow, is reflected in the grassy surface of the water below. That view is truly breathtaking.

I love the peaceful environment of this garden. It is a traditional Japanese garden and as I visited during autumn, the red maple makes it even more beautiful.

Such a beautiful Japanese garden right outside Hikone Castle. I recommend visiting this garden right after you tour the castle.
