Garden of the Former Residence of Kitabatake Family
This garden is typical of the Period of the Northern and Southern Dynasties (1336-1392), and is in the precinct of the Kitabatake-jinja Shrine in which Kitabatake Akiyoshi, the Ise provincial governor, is enshrined. The gardens represent the sense of beauty of the powerful clans, leaving us the images of those times. The garden, which was made in the Muromachi Period, efficiently utilizes the natural geography to create a very dynamic structure. It comprises a complicated shaped pond, and a well balanced arrangement of various sizes of rock and stone, creating a splendid sight for visitors to behold. From the bright, fresh green of the mosses and trees in springtime, to the deep reds, browns and bronzes of autumn, every season is spectacular in this garden.
