Suizenji Garden (O, Suizenji Jōjuen) is a spacious, Japanese style landscape garden in Kumamoto, best enjoyed by scrolling along a circular path. It was built by the Hosokawa family in the 17th century.

The garden reproduces the 53 post stations of the Tokaido, the important road, which connected Edo with Kyoto during the Edo Period, in miniature form, including a small Mt. Fuji.

How to get there
Suizenji is a 30 minute tram ride from JR Kumamoto Station. Get off at the "Suizenji Koen" tram stop, from where the park can be reached in a short walk.

Alternatively, take a train on the JR Hohi Line to Shin-Suizenji Station, the third station from Kumamoto Station. The park can then be reached in a 5 to 10 minute walk from the station.
