A homely and peaceful garden near Fushimi Inari Shrine
The Ohashi Family Garden is located to the north of Fushimi Inari Shrine. The Ohashi Garden was made in 1913 by the garden designer Jihei Ogawa, who was involved in designing the garden of Heian Jingu Shrine, Murin-an, and more in Kyoto. He designed the garden because he was a good friend of the Ohashi family. There are 2 suikinkutsu (an acoustic device which uses water), both of which are the oldest in Kyoto. Since the garden is in the part of the Ohashi family's actual house, you will most definitely feel at home. Please spend some time in these peaceful surroundings away from the busy Fushimi Inari shrine.
