Overview
Sankeien is known as one of the great Japanese garden in Japan. It is very sophisticatedly designed and photogenic. However, many people might not know that this place have an amazing collection of traditional Japanese architecture some even can dating back to 1457. Why was it collected here and who was Mr Sankei? How would you appreciate the Japanese style houses/ temples and what's so special about it? Let me explain about this garden from the very basic questions such as how is Japanese garden and architecture made and you will be an expert at the end of the tour.
