Sengan-En ( Iso- Teien) 仙巖園

We visited the history of Satsuma, history of Shimadzu family and the garden. The Satsuma Clan opened its eyes to foreign countries earlier than anyone else. The Satsuma students dispatch to England dynamically contributed the modernization of new Japan and "The Meiji Restoration" movement. The top pictures were Princess Atsuhime's lifestyle, a talented lady who married to the 13th Shogun and dedicated her life to the continuance of the Tokugawa family in the late Edo period. Inside the garden bright red Peony still booming, they named this special red peony "Sengan-En red".(1-20-2012)
