Perfect place to take the family to enjoy some peace and quiet (pick a nice spot for a picnic, and do not forget of cleaning it back). Besides the fact you can visit a replica of a Japanese tea house, right on the midle of garden where the bonsai trees are perfectly cultivated, moreover there is a charming carp pond,... More

One of my favorite places in Poços, it's a great place to relax and take a lot of pictures. You can rent Japanese clothes to take pictures for R$ 5,00 (been there in July 2015). There's not much else to do, but it's a very very pleasant place to pay a quick visit nonetheless.

In the entrance there is a girl who rents Japanese costumes for women at low cost. The staff are attentive and you can book if... More

A nice place to walk around and spend some time among the flowers and trees and maybe resting in one of the several wook desks.
