Murin-an Garden was designated a Place of Scenic Beauty in 1951. One reason for the designation was its “expression of a waterfall falling in three stages, creation of a stream, and placement of stream-crossing stones, with the stream finally spreading into a pond.”
For more than 120 years since its construction in 1897, the stream from the waterfall has fed abundant water to Murin-an Garden, but due to deterioration over time, water leakage has become noticeable.
Hence, we have decided to perform repairs during the following dates:
Period: February 14-end of March, 2024
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our visitors, but this is an invaluable opportunity to see the repair of a Japanese cultural property.
Taking a moment to reflect on the past 120 years, we hope you will join us in our wish for Murin-an Garden to remain the way it is in the future.
This repair will be performed unti the end of March 2024 thanks to a generous donation from the Nissin Electric Group Foundation for Social Contribution.
