This garden is not only tranquil but has exquisite attention to details that the Japanese gardens are famous for. It is not very big but e prepared to spend some time soaking in the atmosphere.

Beautiful garden to sit and relax, in the rain or shine. The colour and atmosphere changes throughout the seasons, and coupled with a visit to the rose garden and botanic gardens on the UBC campus this is a great afternoon out.

What a wonderful place to visit as a tourist as well as to find refuge in as someone who lives here. It's one of the places I try to take most visitors to. The place is small but beautifully designed. It is such a good fit for our Vancouver landscape.

Vancouver has the good fortune to have one of the most authentic and beautiful Japanese gardens in North America. Quiet, serene, aesthetically inviting, this garden is one of the hidden gems of the city.

Once we managed to find parking this was a lovely garden to visit. It was serene, beautiful and a nice escape from the bustle of downtown Vancouver. The handout they provide at the desk that explains the design of the gardens made it a lot more interesting and easy to appreciate the thought process behind the layout. It was smaller... More

Although it is small it is an oasis in the middle of the jungle. The garden is a nice quiet spot to visit. There is a pond in the middle with paths and bridges to wander about. Very peaceful.

Stepping into this garden immediately awakens your senses with the peacefulness abound. At every angle there is something in the air that beckons you to feast your sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. There are Bridges, ponds, streams, waterfalls, Koi, small statues, stone lanterns, flowers, a variety of trees and with ceremonial tea if you desire. I can see why... More
