National-designated site of scenic beauty, Rakusan-en (Rakusan Garden)

National-designated site of scenic beauty, Rakusan-en (Rakusan Garden)

The national-designated site of scenic beauty, Rakusan-en is the symbol of Kanra town. For the last 10 years, the people in Kanra town worked very hard to restore and improve the environment of the garden. Originally, Nobukatsu ODA, a second son of a famous samurai Nobunaga ODA, was given a property of Obata domain by Ieyasu TOKUGAWA, the founder and first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan and Nobukatsu created a garden in the land. This is the beginning of the Rakusan-en. The garden contains a small hill, teahouses and a pond. From the hill, people enjoy the scenery of autumn color leaves of a nearby mountain. The Rakusa-en is known as the only remaining daimyo garden or ruin in Gunma Prefecture.
