Yushien is a Japanese garden that features 250 types of splendid Japanese peonies. It was established in 1975 in Daikon island, Shimane prefecture, and it covers 40,000 square meters.
In Yushien, Japanese peonies can be seen throughout a year. From the end of April to the beginning of May, more than 30,000 colorful peonies are in full bloom in the garden, and they make the whole area smells sweet.
What makes this garden unique is the pond. Especially, the peonies that are cut carefully and remained only petals are floated on the pond. Pink and yellow peonies fills all the surface of the pond like a carpet. It's absolutely overwhelming.
Besides peonies, many people visit this garden for different reasons. One of the reasons is to enjoy a seasonal scenery. For example, leaves turn red in autumn, and flowers are covered with snow in winter. These magnificent sceneries might make you feel as if you stepped into another world.
In addition, from November to the beginning of January, the garden and also the pond are lighted up with 700,000 electric bulbs, so you can enjoy beautiful and magical night garden too.
There are some Japanese restaurants in the garden so that you can relax and have Japanese cuisine with such a tasteful view.
