Nishikigoi swimming gracefully

There is a pond in the garden of Seiryutei, This pond is filled with large, colorful carp, about 40 to 50 centimeters in length.
Inside the building, there is a glass area at the foot of the building, under which carp swim. You can see it from both inside and outside of the building.

The water in the pond is the same because the inside and outside are connected, but the inside and outside koi do not mix, because the inside koi are male and the outside koi are female to prevent them from breeding.This is because the inside koi are male and the outside koi are female, so that they do not breed.

You can also “feed” the Koi. *Feeding time: Summer vacation~November

Spring Water Objet “Waterwheel

A large waterwheel is located next to Seiryu-tei.
You can use the pump on the right side of the photo to turn the water wheel by pouring water into it. This is a popular spot for a picture!

Spring water spot “Mountain Spring”

Shimabara has many spring water spots, One of them is the “mountain spring” at Seiryu-tei.

In ancient times, people regarded spring water as a blessing from the heavens and allowed it to flow naturally. They created ponds as part of their gardens, channeled water along roads, and used them as communal washing places as part of their daily lives. It has inherited the wishes of the people of the past and continues to be a part of the daily lives of the local people.

It is also called water of fulfillment” because it is “water that has been passed down from generation to generation”.
There is a heart stone hidden in this spot! Please look for it.
