Garden Museum Hiei
This garden museum was installed by a French designer, who used the works of French Impressionist painters as inspiration.
Over the park’s 1.7 hectares, you’ll find gardens based on the hilly lands of Southern France, curved bridges over lily ponds, rose gardens, and more, as well as ceramics adorned with recreations of Impressionist paintings by the likes of Monet and Renoir.
