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

We went here on Nov 22, 2014. upon entering the entrance, the view strucked me! I love the colors of the leaves and the big pond. The scenery is picturesque. Every photo we captured doesnt need a filter as it's already great :)

I was here right before it close, you might want to have some spare time here to enjoy the scenery and lakeside view which is brilliant. They maintain it very well and it is very clean to walk around. they even have a restaurant here and I believe it will be so romantic to have meal right beside a lake.

I think it is the best Japanese garden you can find in Nagoya area. You can access to this garden by 1 day Me-guru tourist bus, so easy to get there. They offer free guided-tour in the garden (by volunteer), but i am not sure if they do the tour in English or not. You can pick the garden map... More

For garden enthusiast, this is a very nice size garden too visit. Although I didn't see the autumn leaves or cherry blossom, I can imagine how beautiful this will be. I especially enjoy the lunch at thethe garden restaurant. Good food with the great view of the garden. I would recommend anyone visit to include lunch as well.

When Spring comes to Japan, everywhere you see for a couple of weeks is a explosion of Pink Petals... Cherry Blossom is an event in the Japanese calendar which every single citizen respects... Tokugawa Garden is a place to visit any time during the year, because it's a singular Japanese Garden... Checked in each detail by specialists to make your... More

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
