≪Autumn Foliage Spots≫ Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Gardens
You can see a large ginkgo which is estimated age 400 years
The grounds were originally the property of the Echigo Takada Clan and were the site of their Edo clan residence. The property later passed into the hands of the Maizuru Prefecture Governor, Makino Sukeshige, and finally became the official residence of the Iwasaki family. Over the years, there were more than 20 buildings on this 49,500 square meters property.
In 1961, the western-style residence and the billiards building were designated important cultural assets, and in 1994 management of the grounds was turned over to the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
The Great Hall of Japanese-style building and the Japanese decorative screens in the East Wing of the western-style building were both designated important cultural assets in 1969. Later, in 1999, the land upon which the residence is located, and the surrounding tiled-walls were also designated important cultural assets.
Highlights of the autumn foliage of the garden is a large ginkgo which is said to be estimated age 400 years. It is the best time to see from late November to early December every year.
