Went there in the autumn, red maple trees were just spectacular (even met 2 weddings/photo shoots and only couple extra peoples). Whole garden was very quiet and lovely, we enjoyed our visit very much. You can buy fish food and feed it to the koi in the ponds, which was very entertaining.

I really loved strolling around this garden. It was beautifully manicured and the scene is so serene. I visited this place on a sunny hot day, when I just got to sit on a shaded lawn and my area was being covered by this huge tree. The view from were I was seated was spectacular. I stared at the beautiful... More

Pleasant garden designed around a lot of water areas and surrounded by beautifully kept plants and trees. At the entrance you can get a map to help you walk round. In the ponds there are fish to feed so look out for the organic food for sale at JPY100 for two pots. We reached this garden via the Nagoya sightseeing... More

I visited here during the autumn colour season. It was not as spectacular as I had wanted it to be but yet worth your visit if you have already exhausted Nagoya Castle, TV tower and Sakae district.

It was a special treat to be there to see brides and grooms in kimono for their wedding pictures. The leaves were changing color at the time and it could not have been more beautiful.

It is a nice and well kept garden. Good to get away from the hot sun. Nothing spectacular. Some small waterfalls and walkways.

A nice little park which was once a residence of the Owari Tokugawa Clan. Normally it is closed on Mondays and on other days open from 0930 to 1730. On the odd occassion it is open in the evening and we were fortunate to visit on one such evening in November. Even a short visit is nice.

Breathtakingly beautiful. Fresh air around. The area is very large. There is small entrance fee. Very relaxing. Take your time to enjoy the natural beauty.
