Wonderful Japanese garden

Beautiful Japanese garden. Very nice to have a quite walk or just to enjoy a day of nice weather. Not expensive (300 ¥) and worth a visit!

Beautiful Japanese gardens with waterfalls, lake where you feed the giant carp, several hundred types of trees and flowers. Though you can go on your own, suggest a guide for explanation of the landscaping, flowers, trees and layout.

Not bad but there are far more beautiful gardens in Japan. OK if you have time to spare. The Tokugawa museum was nice.

Tokugawa Garden as you would expect is in the same grounds as the museum. I think the entrance fee is 500 yen but if purchased with the museum is 1200 + 150 yen saving 350 yen. Quite a nice garden with quiet areas for relaxing, there is also a lake which you can stroll around. Tokugawen restaurant is also located... More

Walking through this garden gave a me a calm, peaceful feeling. The rustling leaves from all the trees, the calm pond with the koi, the splash of water along the small brooks and waterfalls were just wonderful.

This garden is medium size. It takes about 30 minutes to go through and costs 300 yen. There was a beautiful waterfall and a small creek. The pond in the center of the garden, is a pond and not a lake. It's nothing special and we didn't think it was worth the money. That being said, we've visited many Japanese... More

From the Nagoya Station catch the red subway line to Kurumamichi Station. Make your way north to the garden. It’s about a 15 minute walk and will let you see the quieter side of Nagoya. The garden itself has a large lake (yes lake, not pond) which is apparently connected to the sea through some underground tunnels. While people will... More

Beautiful gardens which are currently designated as a "Special place of scenic beauty". The gardens contain a very large sea water ponds with lock gates to Tokyo Bay. Contains a very charming teahouse where you can experience green tea and Japanese sweets.

Luckily before returning home I got an hour to visit here. No subway or train station nearby. Please take bus (#2) to come. It shall take around 25-30 min. The garden is quite big and very beautiful. We found many Japanese bride/spouse taking wedding photo here. You can easily take many photo here. Next to this is the art museum... More

Peaceful, beautiful Japanese garden. Totally worth the visit, specially during spring or summer. Just bring your hat or umbrella if you're going in the summer. I can spend hours there just enjoying the clear blue sky, breathing in the clean air, and looking at the lush greenery & lovely fish pond. Bring a book, find a bench & just enjoy... More
