Yuushien garden on Daikonshima Island was designed as a strolling garden with ponds, streams, trails and waterfalls. The garden is resplendent year round with a variety of blooms though the garden is famous for its peonies. In the 1950's, sericultural industry was in decline on the small island of Daikonshima, and women on the island had to travel all around Japan selling peony seedlings to make a living. A local, Mr Sakai Kadowaki, opened the garden at Daikonshima so that people would visit the island and the free the locals from constant travel around Japan. The garden was named after Kadowaki’s father.
