Suizenji Garden reopened on May 16 after closure due to the earthquake. The sesmic activity caused the water level of the garden's central pond to drop. Suizenji is currently free to enter and open from 8:30 to 17:00. Regular admission hours and fees resume from June 1, 2016.
Suizenji Garden (水前寺成趣園, Suizenji Jōjuen) is a spacious, Japanese style landscape garden in Kumamoto, best enjoyed by strolling along a circular path. It was built by the Hosokawa family in the 17th century.
