This is bby far the best Japanese garden I have visited. This garden is composed of numerous spots you can sit and connect to nature. Small waterfalls, large ponds, and the peak is a beautiful tea house where you can have a short green tea break. the tea house tops a picturesque pond. We spent there few hours and felt... More

We spent an enjoyable couple of hours here strolling through a Daimyo garden. The hills provide a marvellous back drop and the Zen part of the garden is just magnificent. There are even boat rides offered on the calm waters. Thoroughly recommended.

Probably this garden would look much better at other times than early April. There were very few flowers in the garden, except the cherry trees and those were nothing new. However we still spent two hours strolling and taking pictures.

This place is amazing! So beautiful, every corner had a lovely surprise such as a flowering tree, beige, fish in the pond, etc. A very unique and serene park. Different elevations to view the park from and take fantastic photographs. The nice gift shop and tea house topped off this beautiful place.

This garden came to us as a surprise. Even though the weather was wet, we had a wonderful three hours following the marked routes of these beautiful gardens. Ample places to wander and dream, an nice tea room and lots of places to snack and drink. It is situated only a moderate walk from downtown or easily accessible by public... More

Worth visiting. Beautifully landscaped with little bridges, streams, colorful fish, trees and lots of peace and quiet. Can spend two to three hours just walking around and is a great place for a picnic. A must for all Japan visitors.

Enjoy the pleasures that the ancient feudal lords who ruled this area enjoyed centuries ago. Large enough for you to enjoy a relaxing half day walk around with plenty of photo opportunities. Well worth it at every season. I've been here in summer and winter. I recommend the colder months since summer Mosquitos are around due to the ponds in... More

We went late on a slightly damp midweek afternoon. As a result we had the place to ourselves, maybe 4 other people apart from the few remaining workers tidying leaves. It was so peaceful and beautiful in the muted light and really shouldn't be missed. It is also pretty much impossible to take a bad photo even if tried.
