A 10 min walk from Inuyama Castle, this quaint Japanese garden with tea house is nice, quiet and peaceful. Although went in winter, the garden is very well kept and green. It isn't big, if you stroll slowly, you can probably finish walking in it in 30~40 min. There were only a few visitors (probably due to it being a... More

I have sometimes included castle visits with garden visits (ex. Okayama) and found this garden to be small, average and lacking any castle views. The addition of historical teahouses is interesting but on the whole, I wouldn't make a repeat visit here. The Joan teahouse is a National Treasure. I have absolutely no regrets in making the effort to get... More

This lovely place was one of the highlights of our trip. We learned so much from our own private guide and the tea ceremony was wonderful.

Don't come here if you are looking for a 'great' sth. It is a garden, lovely and quite quiet with a lot of beautiful corners. I came here off season which is why I couldn't enjoy a tea ceremony. Just a green tea and a sweet snack in the Koan teahouse. I am a passionate tea drinker, many kinds of... More

Situated next to a big hotel compound, the entrance fee was steep at ¥1000 by comparison to other sights. It's a tea house museum with original tea houses reassembled from other part of the country. Meandering paths made the garden feel bigger. Guide and gardener in the ground very polite and helpful, volunteering and pointing out interesting features which we... More

Immediately adjoining Inumaya Castle, Uraku En is a 1600's ceremonial tea house set in a Japanese landscape garden. Did I mention the azaleas were 6 feet tall? And blooming? Serene is an insuffcient word to decribe the setting.
