@Here, in the three left-hand rooms and gardens of the Negishi home, Hearn spent his happiest months in Matsue. Conceiving and writing most of Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan here as well as large portions of what was to become kwaidan, Hearn paid tribute to his dwelling in his writing. Most well known is the subject of his essay titled "In a Japanese Garden." While 100 years and countless visitors have left the garden somewhat less verdant than the ideal Hearn lovingly describes, its rivers of sand and aged flora still have a unique appeal.
