The purpose of this paper is to consider characteristics of space use of recreational facilities with gardens depicted in Meisyo-zue. The facilities were mainly divided into two categories, such as restaurants and hot spring inns. The restaurants thrived around the Kyoto and Osaka areas, while the hot spring inns were represented by Hyogo, Nagano and Hakone areas. The restaurants were mainly enjoyed in the group, while the hot spring inns were mostly used by individuals. Neverthless, the restaurants and hot spring inns shared a number of common characteristics in terms of recreation and space structures. Recreational facilities had major options, such as scenic appreciation, igo, kemari, shamisen, cha-no-yu. Hot spring inns also had lending libraries and outdoor recreational options in fields and rivers. These recreational options were complemented with excellent scenic locations, gardens with high buildings for scenic appreciation, ponds and springs for refreshing in the cool air,fields for playing kemari and tea ceremony rooms with the adjacent gardens for enjoying cha-no-yu. The recreational facilities with gardens were characterized by a space structure with elements not for personal pleasure, but to fulfill various kinds of pleasure considering many and unspecific customers.
