Inner Garden of Sankeien used to be the residential, private area not open to public. Today the garden has been open to public but the inside of the buildings are open only during the special occasions. This year(2011), inner garden buildings are open to public from November 26 to December 12, which coincides with autumn leave viewing season. Rinshunkaku and the pond garden is often used for memorial photos. I like the fancy building of Choshukaku. During autumn open days you can go into some restricted pathways behind the Choshukaku building.
