We really enjoyed our visit as we walked among the various Japanese gardens, museum, and lakes. We fed the koi and took in all the trees, plants, and culture. A lovely day at a lovely place.

The Morikami is a very interesting site. Beside the gardens they have restaurant which is very good for lunch. In the summer they offer early evening strolls. At various times they have events so check out the website to see what is being offered
