Wakita Naotaka, vassal in the Kaga Clan, started designing and constructing the garden in the middle of the 17th century, and four generations carried on the landscaping of the garden. Naotaka was born in Korea and raised by the Maeda family in Japan by a twist of fate. There are a large number of plants in the garden, including a huge Korean pentaphylla pine that Naotaka and his father raised after they obtained the seed from Korea.
A visitor can enjoy a powdered green tea and experience a Japanese traditional tea ceremony subject to reservation.
