Sankeien is a Japanese garden designated by the national government as a place of scenic beauty and was opened to the public on May 1, 1906, by Sankei Hara, a businessman who made his fortune through the silk trade.
17 historical buildings relocated from Kyoto, Kamakura, and other places, including 10 buildings designated by the national and 3 buildings designated by Yokohama City, are beautifully arranged on a 17.5 ha site in the center of Yokohama, so that visitors can enjoy the harmony of these interesting buildings and seasonal flowers, such as cherry blossoms and autumn leaves.
Also open to the public are the Sankei Memorial Museum which introduces artworks related to here, and the former Yanohara Family Residence, an old Gassho-Zukuri private house that was relocated from Shirakawa-go, Gifu, which is known as a World Heritage site.
In addition, Sankeien also offers a variety of events to enjoy the seasonal beauty of Japan, such as early morning lotus viewing (July through August), where visitors can appreciate lotus flowers that have just bloomed, and moon viewing (for a few days including the fifteenth night of the lunar calendar) in the garden lit up with lights.
