- Kouno Park
- Saga city, Saga prefecture
- Kouno Park is famous for its sakura cherry blossoms. Kakurintei was built inside this park as a tea house for Saga Domain's 10th ruler, Naomasa Nabeshima. In those days, Kakurintei served as a guest house for visitors of stature to Saga, such as Guido Verbeck and Toshimichi Okubo, however it was dismantled in 1960 due to deterioration. Around two decades later, the "Book of Kakurintei" was discovered and the building was restored in 1993 based on only a single photo and an old map. Kakurintei's grounds are of particular interest, with a pond containing the clear water of Tafuse River, surrounded in greenery such as pine trees and plum trees. These days Kakurintei is known as a venue to hold tea ceremonies and a place of respite for locals.
