This traditional Japanese-style Shotoen garden, which translates as "rippling pine garden". Each of the approximately 280 pine trees is between 200 and 300 years old. The enormous stone in front of the Ohiroma grand hall was formerly a stone pedestal on Yanagawa's castle tower. Every year between October and April, over 500 wild ducks migrating for the season rest briefly in Shotoen's pond.
