Ritsurin Garden, located in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, is the best Japanese garden in Shikoku. Since it was built in the second half of the 16th century, it has been beautifully maintained by successive daimyo. The area is 750,000 square meters. The old trees protected by craftsmen are wonderful. To this garden, I would recommend going in the early morning. The opening time depends on the season, but it will be open at 7:00 am at the latest. At that time there are few tourists so you will be able to take great photos. It’s interesting to see how the gardeners are caring for the trees!
