During the early part of the Edo Period, this location is said to have served as a subsidiary mansion of Okubo Hikozaemon, a close confident of Tokugawa Ieyasu, and has been carefully preserved as a Japanese garden that harmonizes with nature. In 1950 it was designated as a "spot which is beautiful viewed from any angle." Today it is famed as a venue where over 2,000 marriages are conducted yearly, and its restaurants and banquet facilities welcome both Japanese and foreign guests.
