Daytime / Autumn Leaves Festival
Fiery fall colors at Mifuneyama Rakuen
As beautiful as a brocade—overlapping red, orange, and yellow fall leaves extending over a 50-hectare garden with Mt. Mifuneyama, 210 meters tall, as the backdrop.
Highlights abound—a 170-year-old maple tree that colors the heart of Mifuneyama with fall hues, well-known spots such as Azalea Valley and Furimuki Slope, together with views of fall leaves all along the far side of the garden’s pond.
Night / Tamayura evening
Covering an area of approximately 13 hectares, Japan’s largest fall foliage illumination
The sky, changing color little by little with the changing angle of the sun. Richly colored fall foliage emerging from the darkness. A quiet fall scene that can only be appreciated at night.
Through views that can only be enjoyed at night, we invite you to discover the distinctive tastes of the garden’s creator, Lord Shigeyoshi Nabeshima. These include the configuration of the walking paths, the positioning of the trees, and the garden itself, which was designed taking advantage of natural topographical features and differences in elevation.
Haginoo Ochaya Tea House
Open to the public during the Fall Foliage Festival, Hagino Ochaya Tea House is pleased to offer its konacha and kushi-dango set (powder tea and skewered sweet dumplings) during the daytime and its konacha and zenzai set (powder tea and red bean soup) at night.
Enjoy a meal while viewing the gardens of Mifuneyama. It is our pleasure to offer dishes such as Saga black wagyu and Wakakusu pork hamburgers and steak sets.
Guests staying at Onyado Chikurintei and Mifuneyama Kanko Hotel are welcome to patronize the Chaya Bar, which comes into being inside Hagino Ochaya Tea House.
