This Japanese garden is complete with all of the elements you would expect: curved red bridge, koi fish, stone pagoda, waterfalls, a large collection of bonsai trees and a kissing couple just so you know it's still Chile. While you can definitely feel the zen element here, it's a bit disrupted by the noise of the busy street nearby, nasty... More

This is a beautiful and fairly large Japanese garden modeled off a famous garden in Kyoto. It was a great place to spend a couple hours, watching ducks and swans, on the wonderful grounds.

Clean, well groomed. A great place to visit after an early dinner or to take in some mid-day sun. If you come late, be sure to check what time closing is. They sold us our tickets ~30 minutes before closing and neglected to inform us that we'd best hurry up if we want to see it all.
