Oct. Noon

Shukkein was built in 1620 as a garden in a separate residence of Hiroshima's feudal lord, Nagaakira Asano, by his principal retainer, Soko Ueda, who was also a tea ceremony master. It is said that the interior of the garden was created to resemble "Xihu" (West Lake) in China. Its name literally means "shrink-scenery garden," as it has collected many scenic views in a single garden. In 1949, four years after the atomic bomb, the Prefectural Board of Education promoted that the area must be restored to its original landscape before World War II. Over the course of 25 years, many structures have been restored, including the Seifukan and Meigetsutei.
