Elegant view from the hall: Ohiroma
Facing the pond, the hall, Ohiroma, is a Japanese formal reception room, dedicated for ceremonial purposes. Measuring 28 square meter, you can enjoy the beautiful view from the spacious room. Order a set menu with a seasonal Japanese sweet and Japanese green tea. You can spend a relaxing time, like many Japanese do.
Perfect spot to take pictures of the hall
In the pond, there are two - big and small - islands. The bigger one is called Tsuru and the smaller one is called Kame, together they are known as "Horai islands." If you go to the lantern situated near the Kame island, you get a great perspective of the Hall making for a perfect shot. From autumn leaves in fall and snow in winter, enjoy beautiful views that change every season.
Authentic tea house
Away from the main building, there is a 7-square-meter tea house with a thatched roof called Jyosuian surrounded by trees and bamboo. This is named after the Japanese warrior, Kuroda Kanbee, from his baptismal name "Kuroda Jyosui." Furthermore, a 13-square-meter tea house "Shozanan" is also named after the Kuroda family. They are both charming and authentic tea houses.
The place is more beautiful during autumn
Yusentei Park looks even more beautiful during autumn. Inside the spacious property, the leaves of trees such as maple change their color. Enjoy a charming walk surrounded by beautiful leaves. You can walk around the pond to enjoy the autumn leaves in and from every direction.
