Yuushien is a Japanese garden in the middle of Daikon Island in the Nakaumi between shimane and Tottori.

This is where we went to see the peonies in bloom recently.

While the peonies were certainly the stars of the garden in May, there were other flowers in bloom too including wisteria.

Its a circuit walking garden with a few side paths to explore.

There are different flowers in bloom at different times of the year and for the fall foliage the garden is illuminated and open late.

There are buses to Daikon Island from Matsue and Sakaimoinato.

The garden is open from 8:30 to 17:30. 7 days a week and entrance is 600 yen


  1. great photos as usual. I recently tried wisteria tempura during my trip to Daisen. Didn't even know it was edible.

  2. Excellent photos of an exceptionally beautiful garden. Sadly one I did not visit in my years in Japan. Thanks for posting the photos.

  3. Hi Jim.... will post some more on Yuushien in a few days.....
