Shokado Garden Art Museum is the place related to Shokado Shojo(1584-1639) who was a buddhist priest from the Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine.

Shokado Garden has an area of approximately 22,000㎡ and the Soan "Shokado", where Shojo lived after his retirement (currently unavailable due to the earthquake of June 18, 2018). The garden is also home to three tearooms, "Sho-in", "Chiku-in" and "Bai-in". In addition to more than 40 kinds of bamboo and nearly 300 camellia trees, plum trees, cherry trees, green maple trees and Japanese maple trees are also present in the garden, creating beautiful sceneries across all four seasons.

Shokado Art Museum has a planned exhibition and a special exhibition held in spring and autumn each year, and has exhibitions focused on the museum collections held around three times a year.
