The garden was clean (like any other places in Japan) and although it was cloudy when I went, I could very much feel the historic and cultural atmosphere. The only attraction for children may be the traditional housing brought from Shirakawa-go and also the view from the observatory on top of the mountain (come with sneakers if you wish to... More

Very peaceful, and relaxing. It's easy to get there by the number 8 bus from Yokohama etc. the bus drops you near the gardens and does a loop, so you can take the return back just a little further on the same road. As an added bonus, it's one of the only places in Tokyo area which isn't absolutely packed... More

Very pleasant to visit. We went on a Sunday and saw a number of wedding processions that added to our experience

One of Yokohama's best bargains at only 500yen/adult. 175000㎡ of gorgeous scenery, complete with seventeen old buildings and temples. The park has special events throughout the year, so be sure to check their website before you make plans to go.

Serene and beautiful place. A must visit in Yokohama! The total area is beautifully set up with a lakes full of fish and birds, blooming flowers all over, and a Pagoda overlooking the garden. The Bonsasi collection is amazing and so are the buildings, tea houses, and the lovely walking paths.

Its a lovely place if you want an escape from the hussle in the city. Its peaceful and quite, I most liked the old house,reminds me so much of the Last samurai movie. Its worth the visit, plus the entrance is only 500 yen.

I was really disappointed with this place because it was highly recommended by others. Also, it's quite far and inconvenient. It's just a garden that has structures from different parts of Japan. Maybe, I got over these types of gardens. I just liked the lake here and thats it.

We were in Yokohama for a Congress and the Tourism Office of Yokohama highly recommended us to visit this Japanese typical park. We did it and we were not disappointed at all. This is something like doing a visit of Japan and having the opportunity to see in the same time the old and the new Japan. The parks contain... More

This large facility is less of a garden and more of a collection of buildings from various periods in Japanese history. A wealthy businessman purchased these buildings form various parts of Japan and had them erected at this site outside of Yokohama. In addition, he built a residence for himself in 1920. Later a modern building was constructed to house... More
