About Zao Sansui-en
The Matsukawa River flows through the garden, and you can enjoy a walk along the riverbank while looking at the Zao Mountain Range.
The stream, which was the origin of the name "Seseragi-no-Sato" (village of murmuring fireflies), runs through the garden and is still so pure that fireflies can live there.
The park is filled with the colors of the four seasons: spring with fresh greenery, summer with green leaves, autumn with red leaves, and winter with silvery white leaves. The park is full of nature, with trees, flowers, and flowering plants adding color to the seasons. The garden is also home to many wild birds.
A 24-hour security system is in place.
The garden is patrolled every two hours during the night to ensure safety and security.
