The Hachinohe Nanbu Clan Garden

During the late Edo period, a son of the Shimazu Clan of Kagoshima was adopted into the Hachinohe branch of the Nanbu clan to become the 8th lord of the domain. He was named Nobuyuki Nanbu, and in 1847 the Hachinohe Nanbu Clan Garden was built to welcome him.

The area was said to originally have been used as a place for lords to rest and look out upon the river & coast for foreign ships. But when Nobuyuki moved from Kagoshima he brought with him Satsuma trained gardeners who shaped the garden into what it is today. While enjoying the beauty of the garden visitors can also enjoy the scenery of the nearby flowing Mabechi river and on clear days the distant snowcapped peaks of the majestic Hakkoda Mountains.
