February 1, 2017 – Murin-an was featured on NIPPON TV’s program “Kokoro ni Kizamu Fukei”. The program portrayed the life of the Murin-an’s original owner, Aritomo Yamagata with beautiful footage. Not just the Murin-an but also Yamaguchi prefecture where he spent his youth as well as Kokian in Odawara which Yamagata built for his retirement home were covered in a thoughtful manner. We appreciate that the Murin-an was presented in the program that provides the senses of way of life through the Meiji, Taisho and Showa periods. We feel that we were also given the opportunity to review the fundamental values of Japanese garden to further improve.
