The history of Oyakuen began with Morihisa Ashina, head of the Ashina family during the Muromachi period. He built a second house where a spirutal spring sprang forth. In 1932, the garden was designated a National Scenic Site, as a prime example of a Tokugawa-period garden. Its name Oyakuen, which means "medicinal herb garden", is dervied from both the circuit style garden, which features a a pond in center, and from the herb garden where a variety of herbs are still grown today. The flowers which bloom beautifully throughout the seasons make the garden evn more attractive. At the tea house you can relax and enjoy a cup of herbal tea which can be tasted only at Oyakuen.
