Sudo Park 須藤公園

Sudo Park is a little gem in Sendagi. Its origin dates back to the Edo Era when it was the property of the Kaga feudal domain. It was made into a public area in 1933 and was recently revitalized through major construction that ended in 2018. The parks major feature is its pond with koi fish in it and its small waterfalls.

The Former Kusuo Yasuda Residence 旧安田楠雄邸庭園

The Kusuo Yasuda Residence was constructed during the Taisho Era, in 1919, and belonged to an aristocratic family. A rare example of its kind, the house was converted into a museum of sorts in 1996 when it was donated to the Japan National Trust by the eldest son of the Yasuda family. Every room of the house is open to the public. The furniture, decorations, and architecture are beautiful blends of traditional Japanese and European design. The house exemplifies the westernization of Japan during the Taisho Era.
