    About the Garden:

    As a tourism development project, Kamo Shobuen began maintenance in 1965, for 6,300 square meters of land owned by Kamo Shrine and owned by Toyohashi City.

    And in 1978, night lighting was installed to make the place more beautiful. And to attract more visitors, in 1988 the Garden was expanded on the east side.


    The shrine is deeply connected to the famous warrior Tokugawa Ieyasu, and it is said that he visited this shrine during the Invasion of Enshu and the Nagashino War, he stopped at this shrine to pray.
