The Tokugawa Garden was a retirement home for Tokugawa Mitsumoto, the second generation lord of Owari domain and head of the Tokugawa Gosanke family. It was called the “Ozone Yashiki” at the time.
In 1931, the city of Nagoya rebuilt the villa and garden, which had become its property. The “daimyo garden” was opened in 2004 and features a path around a pond.
In addition to incorporating an Edo period daimyo garden into the design, there are also ponds designed to suggest a waterfall, a mountain stream, and the ocean, a nod to vistas around Owari. The existing topography and evergreen trees, as well as rock formations, present a varied and interesting display.
In spring, you can see the peonies in flower, and in early summer the irises. This is followed in fall by lovely foliage.
