Osakiteien

Osaki Garden is designated a National Site of Scenic Beauty by the Japanese government, and can be found in Uno village. It was owned by the Osaki family in the Edo period. The garden is a combination of Chisen (pond-style) garden and Shoin (traditional Japanese architecture) style teahouse garden, and has a number of features designed to intrigue, beginning with a Buddhist pine. One of the garden’s charms is a panoramic backdrop of a low mountain range. It is, however, not open to the public.

国の名勝に指定されている宇野地区の尾崎氏庭園は、江戸時代の大庄屋尾崎氏の庭園です。池泉式庭園と書院式露路を統合し、「来迎(らいごう)の松」をはじめ、様々な趣向が凝らされた名園で、後方の低い山並みと一体となった景観も、この庭園の魅力の一つです。ただし、現在は非公開となっています。
