Fuzoku Gaho

Previous - Next

Fuller descriptions follow of some of the more important of the large gardens included in the preceding list, the information being partly taken from a publication called the "Fuzoku Gaho." In some cases the gardens described remain in a state approaching their former splendour, and have been personally visited by the present writer; but the majority have been so broken up that to mention them as existing examples would seriously mislead and disappoint any one wishing to visit them. Their detailed notice, therefore, belongs properly to the historical section of this work.
