Mantokuji Garden - The artificial hill of this garden that spreads out in front of the thatched-roof Shoin is built in the form of what is called a "buried stone garden", and the height of the three stones on the top of the artificial hill is 3 meters! In late spring, many azaleas planted in the artificial hills decorate the garden, and in autumn, the national natural monument Oyama Momiji, which is a borrowed landscape of the garden, decorates the garden. The maple, which is said to be 500 years old, has been selected as one of the 100 best autumn leaves in Japan. Although it is an appreciation-style garden, you can see the garden from various angles from the strolling path such as the stairs leading up to the main hall Amidado on the hill.
