Harusame-tei Calligraphy Hut at Tenshaen Garden - built for the retirement of Munetada Date, the seventh feudal lord of Uwajma. It was named after a poem by Masamune Date that described the ideal way to live a life of retirement. The garden delights visitors with seasonal flowers in particular its famous arched bridge lined with wisteria trellises known as the “ascending wisterias”. Another feature of the garden is the many varieties of bamboo surrounding a pond, associated with the sparrow and bamboo crest of the Date family. Tensho-en Garden is a Daimyo Garden which was designed as a retirement villa for Masamune and is completed in the late Edo period.
