Arched Bridge at Banshoen Garden - Nakatsu Banshoen - Marugame is famous for its historic castle, but few realize that there is an amazing garden hidden nearby. Nakatsu Banshoen was built in 1688 for the second generation feudal lord of Marugame. It contains a winding path around a lovely pond garden full of islands. This is a daimyo garden and one of the largest and most famous gardens in Kagawa prefecture. Eight islands of the eight most scenic places of Omi were created in the pond which was modelled on Lake Biwa. The garden is also covered with more than 1,500 pine trees plus hundreds of Satsuki, making use of the surrounding landscape in the design of a garden in Seto Inland Sea.
