An old grand entrance, Koi fish in the large clear ponds and the water is clear as it is spring water from the mountains. The facilities inside and outside for food and drinks is very good and there is a lot of local sweets to try. Some of the best coffee in Japan is in a cafe near the entrance.

This is a very sweet Japanese garden. It is a circular strolling park in which you walk around the central lake, over small bridges. Apparently, it is designed to represent the 53 stops along the Tokaido Road, from Tokyo to Kyoto. There are quaint representations of different key sites, including Mount Fuji. Not being familiar with Japanese geography, we were... More

This is a small garden that can be visited in 30 minutes. You can linger a bit more, as it is very picturesque. Little Mount Fuji is the main attraction as well as the fish and birds. Charming.

the garden is very easy to get to. Just take one of the quaint trams and get off at stop 18. The park is only a five minute walk from the tram stop. The gardens are truely breathtaking in their calm beauty and it is enough simply to sit and take it all in. There is a lovely tea house... More

Even the children ( aged from 3-9 ) enjoyed the gardens on a glorious sunny morning. Easy to walk round with an excellent variety of trees, shrubs and flowers all beautifully tended, the star attraction is the lake with its carp and ducks. The Wedding Hall is in active use-you may be fortunate to witness a kimono clad bride.

It was so picturesque, almost every angle we wandered around could become an excellent photo even just with a smart phone. It was plum blossoming when we visited, so many beautiful plum trees that we did not want to leave...

A beautiful and well-kept Japanese garden. There is a small temple, a pond and a Mount Fuji replica in it. Great place to take a walk, enjoying the view of the carefully arranged plants.

but still a surprise this beautiful garden did survive in the encroaching city. We did enjoy a cup of matcha, One has to sit and contemplate to fully appreciate the beauty. The landscape is a mini version of Japan, but I could only recognize mount Fuji, I missed a leaflet with more information

I totally cannot understand how the Tokaido highway is represented in the garden, other than the Mt Fuji "replica" (and why didn't they add the snow cap?) Nevertheless, it was a pleasant walk, and a easy location to take nice looking photographs.
