It is a bit overpriced. But a really cute place to walk and chill without strain. If you have trouble walking about too much, then this is a place to go.

While smaller than other North American Japanese-style gardens like the Portland Japanese Garden, Nitobe still offers tons of small pleasures hidden away in corners. The location at the edge of the UBC campus adds a lot to the tranquility; the many benches carefully placed throughout are nice for taking it all in. A variety of lanterns to admire, and such...
