Kagoshima

Sengan-en is located in the city of Kagoshima in Kagoshima Prefecture. The name “Sengan-en” comes from a place in China on which the garden is modeled. This garden was created by Shimazu Mitsuhisa, ruler of this region, to be used as his villa in 1658, and was later expanded into its present form in 1848. The garden has a grand view that encompasses Kinko Bay in the foreground, and the towering volcano Sakura-jima beyond the bay. A gas lamp in the shape of a stone lantern, the first in Japan, may also be seen in the garden.
