Hokoku Toyokuni Garden at Osaka Castle - Kanmin Garden Shusekitei, designed by Mirei Shigemori, at Hokoku Toyokuni Shrine, Osaka Castle Grounds. This garden deifies the stones in the tradition of Japanese gardening techniques. The area around Osaka Castle was originally called Ishiyama which is one of the themes of the garden the others being the ocean and the prosperity of Osaka and the ocean. The shape of the garden is based on a gourd which Hideyoshi used as his battle flag insignia. The large stones used in Shusekitei represent Ishiyama, the original name of the location of the shrine.
