Facility summary and accessibility conditions

Encho-en is one of the biggest real Chinese-style gardens in Japan.
It has been built at the lakeside of Togo Lake to show the friendship between Tottori Prefecture and Hebei Province of China.
All of the work (designing, procuring materials, and processing) were carried out in China.
The building was once temporally framed and knocked down before transporting to Japan, and then it was built again under the supervision of Chinese engineers.
As walking around the garden, you will be grabbed by 28 scenic spots of reproduced Chinese garden with reality.
Next to Administration office, there is the entrance/exit for wheelchair users.
The garden is accessible to wheelchair users except the steps in a few parts, so they can enjoy the variety of beauty spots.
