Fujita Memorial Garden
Located in the heart of Hirosaki city in Aomori (northern Japan), the Fujita Memorial Garden was built in 1919 by Fujita Kenichi who was the first chairman of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
While not unique in Japan, this garden features both a traditional Japanese house, now used as an art gallery, and a European style house which has been turned into a cake shop. The latter happened to be Mr. Fujita’s main residence. There are also a pair of Japanese gardens.
Despite it’s modest size, the Fujita Memorial Garden is a fantastic place all year long for a small stroll and some good cakes!
