Yosui-en(cultivated green garden)was built in 1818 by Harutomi Tokugawa,a feudal lord of Wakayama Prefecture(which was called kishu in olden times).It was built as his rest place for tea ceremony and the jissai-an is widely known as the oldest tea house in Wakayama Prefecture. There are many old pine trees in the 33000㎡ garden.At the center there is a 10000㎡ pond filled with sea water, so the water level changes with the tides. There are many grey mullet in the pond and they often can be jumping up from the water. A guardian deity is enshrined on the island in the middle of the pond.Two bridges span the pond,taikobashi and Mitsuhashi.The pond is shaped like the West Lake in China. The artistic design of Yosui-en is such that the characteristic straight asts beautifully with the complicated curved line of the surrounding Jap-anese garden. We hope that you enjoy your visit to Yosui-en.

养翠园（栽培绿色花园）由和歌山县（古代称为纪州）的封建领主德川晴臣于 1818 年建造。它是他茶道的休息场所，而 jissai-an 广为人知 作为和歌山县最古老的茶馆。 33000㎡的花园里有许多古老的松树。中央有一个10000㎡的池塘，里面装满了海水，所以水位随潮汐而变化。 池塘里有很多灰鲻鱼，它们经常可以从水里跳出来。 池塘中央的小岛上供奉着一位守护神。两座桥横跨池塘，太鼓桥和三桥。池塘的形状像中国的西湖。 养翠园 的艺术设计是这样的，特色的笔直与周围日本花园的复杂曲线相得益彰。 成人600日元，儿童300日元（小学生），小学生以下免费。入园者可免费停车
