Feast your eyes

A feast for garden lovers. Walk around the lake and enjoy the views. One of the few locations with some souvenir shops around here.

We walked to the park, but a nearby tramstop makes that an option. The garden is beautiful and well-kept, but rather small. After walking round the pond we realised that that was all. The shrines were not accessible as they were used for private ceremonies.

A bit out of town, reaching by the tram, the garden is nice and worth a visit. There is a small dessert shop that you can sit, drinking green tea and watching the beautiful garden across the pond.

This is a beautiful Japanese garden, filled with sculptured gardens, lakes, and full of history. Good way to spend an afternoon.

When in Kumamoto, this is definitely worth a visit on a nice day. Easily accessible by streetcar. The big hill in the garden is supposed to represent Fuji. There is a small temple on the grounds as well. The only downside is that this garden is on approach of Kumamoto airport, hence airplanes fly right overhead.

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.
