National-designated special scenic beauty
Over fifteen ruins of gardens have been discovered in Ichijodani. Some of them have a style of garden that features a path around a central pond and spring with magnificent arrangement of garden stones. Others have simple and refined dry landscape garden, etc. Well preserved stone arrangement tells us the garden style in those days. Out of these gardens, four of them, including the largest one called “Ruins of Suwa residence”, are designated as national-designated special scenic beauty.
