Designated as a National Site of Scenic Beauty in 1940, Shukkeien Garden is located in the middle of Hiroshima City, making it an ideal place to escape the bustling noise outside. Shukkeien Garden, or “shrunken-scenic garden,” embodies the natural beauty of landscapes on a smaller scale. Shukkeien Garden is a perfect place for a nice walk, as there are paths through the garden to take in the scenery.

There are many tea houses located throughout the garden, as the designer of the garden was a tea master. The garden hosts many Japanese tea ceremonies as part of its long tradition. Depending on the month, the theme of the tea ceremony changes, such as Oobuku Chakai (good luck/health tea ceremony) in January to Kanou Chakai (cherry blossom viewing tea ceremony) in April. Once visitors are done viewing the garden, they can take a rest at the tea shop and enjoy the sweets and tea offered there.
