Gyorakuen is a famous garden built and completed by known Japanese painter Sesshu while he was living in Amagi, Kawasaki during the Muromachi Period. Unable to return to Kyoto during the Onin War, he settled for a time in Kawasaki. It is said that he utilized the landscape techniques he learned in China, creating a garden which offers superb views in every season. It draws in a lot of visitors in November with the fall foliage of its trees. A recommended souvenir from here is the "Suppon Honey Candy" which is a candy full of health benefits with a nostalgic taste.
