Stunningly beautiful gardens. We visited after visiting the Peace Memorial and it was a welcome relief from the crowds and depressing reality of the museum. Worth spending some time here if you can fit it in.

Absolutely beautiful garden with paths to walk through and constructed delights, such as bridges, island for turtles, etc. A perfect way to spend an hour or two after removing morning at Hiroshima memorials.

Breathtaking view and so relaxing! Friendly staff too. Some parts are not wheelchair accessible. They have a souvenir shop too. And they give out discount coupons. The have coffee shops in and out and near the station.

A very peaceful and beautiful garden in the heart of the city. Though the cityscape is visible around the garden, Shukkei-en Garden offers wonderful vistas that bring peace and tranquility to ones soul. Nicely maintained.

Lovely quiet park. Sit or walk, best for those who enjoy gardens. Not a place to rush through and tick off your list. Lots of leaping fish and turtles, beautiful trees and a 200 yr old ginko tree that survived the A-bomb.

We decided to go here after visiting the peace park. The garden is just beautiful & so peaceful. You can wander around at your own pace admiring the beautifully maintained trees & garden. A good way to end a day in Hiroshima.

Amazing garden! One of the best i visited in Japan. Well maintained and the signs with a directed route is a nice touch so that you see all areas that the garden has to offer!
