Shiroishi Classical Theater Heritage Center – Hekisuien

There is a noh theater and a tea-ceremony room at Hekisuien. The noh theater using the Kitano stage of Kyoto’s Nishi Honganji Temple as a model, incorporated a garden element into the stage. Hence, you get to experience performances while being surrounded by nature.

According to sage Tachibana Daiki, the name “Rannyotei” and “Hekisuian” is derived from 2 sentences found in the book “Zenrin Kushuu” (a collection of haiku poems of Zen temple).
he name “Rannyotei” is derived from the sentence of “Junsui Tannyo Ran”, which means “to be filled with water and moisture like blue” while the name “Hekisuian” is from the sentence “Enzan Mugen Hekisousou”, which means the mountains spread far without limit and the color blue is of layers.
The water that originates from Zao flows into Hekigyokukei River and passes through the inner moat of Shiroishi Castle and into the garden’s lake.
The “Ki” of “Hekisuien” is written as “Shiroishi no Ou”, which means “King of Shiroishi”.
