15.Shinchi Teien (Sacred Pond Garden)

This garden, one of the most celebrated in Japan, was created early in the Meiji era. When it was restored in 1999, it was discovered that the garden is one of the finest ones in Japan. It is a strolling garden, and its centerpiece is a waterfall in a setting so serene that visitors may think they are deep in the mountains.
