Zuiho-ji Park
Zuiho-ji Park


The park was built on the ruins of Zuiho-ji Temple, and it is known as one of the best places to view the autumn leaves in Hyogo Prefecture. Hideyoshi Toyotomi (a famous feudal lord known as one of the great unifiers of Japan) praised it as a "garden I never get tired of looking at”. As a result, the park is also known as Higurashi-no-Niwa (literally, a "garden enjoyable from morning till night"). The park is also famous for splendid cherry blossoms in spring, and was chosen as one of Kobe's 50 Best Flower Spots.
