Genkyuen stands to the east of the Rakurakuen, near the Kuro Gate facing the inner moat to the north of Hikone Castle. It is fed by Lake Biwa, with the pond and fountain-style garden imitating the eight scenic spots of Shukusho in China. The fourth lord of the Ii family, Naosuke built this garden in the midst of Genroku cultural prosperity. Irises grow in the lake and a bridge connects the inner island. Several people stand on the bridge.
