Ritsurin Garden is a daimyo (feudal lord) garden, which was completed in 1745 over a period of one hundred years. Designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, this spacious garden features 6 ponds and 13 landscaped hills. While strolling you can enjoy the changing landscape, therefore it is said that the variety of scenery has the attraction of “ippo ikkei” or a change in scenery with every step. In the garden there are buildings, such as Kikugetsu-tei teahouse, where you can have matcha (powdered green tea) while viewing the picturesque landscape, and the Sanuki Mingeikan (Folk Craft Museum), where Sanuki folk crafts are exhibited. You can also enjoy a ride on a Japanese boat, the “Senshu maru”.
The Seto Ohashi Bridge is one of the world’s largest bridges for combined use by automobiles and trains. The commemorative park was founded by renovating the site of the Memorial Exposition of the bridge building. You can see all aspects of this massive construction project at the Seto Ohashi Memorial Hall.
