Yusentei was built as a vacation house by a feudal lord of Fukuoka in 1754 and was reopened by the city of Fukuoka in 1981 as a historical park. This garden is constructed in the chisen kaiyu-shiki style, that is a strolling garden centered on a scenic pond. The paths of the garden wind through thick trees and mossy rocks, up miniature hills and along the shore of the koi pond, immersing visitors in a uniquely Japanese landscape garden atmosphere. At the large teahouse overlooking the pond, visitors can enjoy matcha tea at the teahouse overlooking the pond. The garden is named after a poem by Kuze Michinatsu, which expresses the coolness of the spring water in the summer and the feeling of retreat at the Jyosuian and Shozanan teahouses.
