Yokan Garden Gate and Wall

Important Cultural Property (Structure) Date of designation: August 7, 2013

The gate and wall separate the main entrance of the Yokan from the lawn garden located to the south. The wall extends to the west of the entrance along the circumference of the driveway. There used to be a pergola (with benches) at the center, with a garden gate to the west. These structures feature the same Taikaseki tuff and scratch tile decorations as the Yokan, but the gate doors, iron fences, pergola, and benches have been lost. The lawn garden to the south of the Yokan was a popular site for garden parties, and the family of Marquis Maeda also reportedly enjoyed horseback riding and skiing there. The Western-style lawn garden features a number of artificial hills (tsukiyama), while visitors can view stone lanterns and other Japanese-style garden elements along the garden path beyond the hills.
