Chiran, Minamikyushu, Kagoshima 897-0302, Japan

Most of the gardens were built in the 17th century by gardeners brought from Kyoto for the purpose. Each garden is designed to be viewed from the house, but unfortunately none of the houses are open to the public as most are still lived in, but all seven gardens can be viewed from within the grounds. Since 1975 the gardens have been maintained by a Preservation Society, and though small they are quite exquisite. They are registered as National Cultural assets. Six are of the karesansui, dry style, one of which is quite unusual being composed almost completely of trimmed bushes.
