Anrakuji Temple Garden - Nagahama - Anrakuji Garden was once the domain of a villa owned by the Fujiwara clan. Its pond garden contains the requisite crane and tortoise islands, and is said to have been designed by Kokushi. Its small pond simulates Lake Biwa which is nearby. Others contend that the garden was constructed during the Edo Period. Either way, the original garden was destroyed by fires and other forms of devastation, therefore the present garden is a remodeled version of its former design.
