Take a stroll around the garden, and be sure to notice the circular rock, which when viewed through shows the Tohoku Region’s very own Mt. Fuji, Mt. Chokai. The garden and villa were originally constructed in 1813 as a holiday home for the head of the Honma family, a prominent merchant family in the area whose residence can be visited in a different part of the town. The traditional strolling garden is composed of a central pond and a winding network of trails that provide constantly changing, scenic views.
