Nostalgic thoughts of Mirei’s beloved Kyoto

Yurin-no–niwa (Garden of Yurin)

This garden which was originally constructed at Kyoto Yurin Kaikan in 1969 was relocated to the Kayo Building of Kibichuo-cho in 2002. The garden was named yurin-no-niwa (Yurin Garden), combining yu from the name of Yuzensai Miyazaki who perfected the Japanese yuzen dyeing technique, and rin from the name of Korin Ogata who was a Japanese painter of the rinpa school in the Edo Era. It is a chisen kanshoshiki teien (pond appreciation style garden), and is a modern pond garden design based on noshi (thin paper ornaments attached to gifts for special occasions). The pond water is shallow, making it flow spirally with high transparency, and the northern garden view is said to resemble that of Amanohashidate in Kyoto.
