Take a relaxing stroll through Sengan-en, a scenic Japanese-style garden that forms part of a World Heritage Site. Built in 1658 as a private residence for the Shimazu Clan, the gardens are renowned for offering postcard-like views of the majestic Mt. Sakurajima in the background. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere as you roam the luscious landscape, sprinkled with ponds, picturesque stone bridges, bamboo groves, and an array of seasonal trees and plants. For an additional fee, you can take a short tour of the Iso villa, reconstructed in the 19th century.

去年西郷どんが放送されてから仙巌園に行ってみたく観光がてら行くと桜島が綺麗に見えるし、西郷どんで放送された場所の一部があったりとても神秘的でした。鹿児島きたら仙巌園、ぜひ行ってほしいです more »Sakurajima looks beautiful when i want to go to Seniwaen after Saigo don was broadcast last year, and there are some places that were broadcast in Saigo don, and it was very mysterious. I want you to go to Kagoshima Seniwaen.
It's lovely garden and house which is overwhelmingly beautiful. So well designed and maintained for few hundred years. The view of sakurajima is the best!! more »
Lovely historic place with lots to see and learn. The old ancient home is well worth the visit too! The shops are fun to check out too as they feature all the old brands which were present during the olden days.
