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.

Other than a few colourful maple trees at the entrance and in the garden, it was quite an ordinary garden. Gardens in Kyoto are better landscaped and impressive, with rooms to wander around and admire the gardens from. It's a bit odd to see the city buildings beyond the gardens.

Well laid out Japanese Gardens with a large lake as the central feature. Take the time to stroll around and ensure you combine this with a visit to the Tokugawa Art Museum. About 1km walk from the underground leaving at exit 3, directions are adequately signposted.

When I visited Tokugawa Garden, the weather was gorgeous if a bit cool, and I was surprised to see dozens of peonies in bloom despite the chilly weather (they were protected by straw huts). The gardens weren’t as formal as others I’ve seen, but it made for an enjoyable stroll. This is a very pleasant way to spend an hour... More
