This tranquil garden features numerous bodies of water and paths that wind up and down the hill it rests on. The main pond has two waterfalls in the shape of the Kanji (Chinese character) for 'water'. There is also a beautiful moss-covered yukimi stone lantern and a cylindrical stone water basin.
The garden was probably designed and construction supervised by Wakita Naokita, whose father, Kim-shi, was taken prisoner by the Japanese during their late 16th century invasion of Korea. Kim-shi was brought back to Japan and lived with the Maeda clan, then rulers of the Kanazawa area. He later changed his name to Wakita Naokata.
The flowers withered,
Their color faded away,
I spent my days in the world
And the long rains were falling.
