The Shosei-en Garden, in Kyoto, is a small garden (about eight acres) near the Higashi Honganji Temple complex, to which it belongs.
It is also called ‘Kikoku-tei’ (trifoliate orange) because of the presence of that type of orange tree in the garden.
The garden is not far from the main Kyoto Station. It was landscaped in 1653.
