Teahouse at the pond garden of Shosei-en - Rinchi-tei on the left and Tekisui-ken to its right. Shosei-en Garden was designed as a retreat for the chief priest Sen'nyo. Shosei-en is also called Kikoku-tei "Orange Mansion" because it was once surrounded by orange groves. The garden is a Chisen Kaiyu Shiki teien, that is, a pond strolling garden with buildings such as tea-ceremony houses arranged throughout the grounds.
