Suma Rikyu Park 須磨離宮公園

Last weekend was the end of the Kōbe tourist week, where many local sites offered discounted or free admission. One of the last places I got to check out was the Suma Rikyu Park, a botanical garden and park created in 1967 on the general model of the Palace of Versailles park. It includes about 230 types of trees, substantial gardens of iris, rose, and camellia. Photograph is from the goose and lotus pond across from the iris garden.


  1. I wonder if this is the same park that has a really good soba place on its property.

  2. Not sure, it does have a restaurant that overlooks a large roman fountain but I did not go inside?


  3. Nice photos. I can enjoy them but... sory my bad English to leave a large comment.
