A beautifully landscaped garden for a pleasure walk. There is a great deal of information to be learned about the Japanese immigrants that settled in south Florida at the museum. The plantings are outstanding. You can enjoy a beautiful lunch while you are there on the terrace that overlooks the gardens.

If you either live or visit Delray Beach, this is a must place to visit. Their oriental gardens are magnificent, they have a wonderful museum, their restaurant is hard to get into but well worth going to & please visit their gift shop. Do not leave Delray without visiting this extraordinary place. They also have great events, so check them... More

I am a fan of the landscape design of Hoichi Kurisu and this is one of his large public garden works. This gardens, the museum, gift shop, and the cafe were were always on my parents "must go see" list when I visited them in Florida. I have watched the garden expand and improve over the years. The Morikami also... More

Beautiful and authentic Japanese gardens. I was amazed at what I saw and experienced during my visit. It reminded me of my trip to Japan 5 years ago-everything from the manicured lawns, artifact museum and delicious cafe!

As a photographer I frequent the Japanese gardens for photo sessions. Mostly for couples. It's very relaxing and fun to walk around.

A friend of mine suggested as I am a garden person that I visit Morikami and I am so glad that I did. There is a one mile walk on a hard service path around the lake with 25 points of interest along the way. This makes the gardens very handicapped accessible even for wheel chairs. One can rent an...

This is a real not hidden gem. Once through the gates it's as if you are transformed 10,000 miles away, really peaceful, quiet, relaxing and beautiful

I've visited Morikami three times, and each time there's something new to gaze upon and enjoy. Gardens are divided into small sections where sculpture abounds. A bridge marks the entrance to the Japanese gardens and symbolizes the link between Japan and Florida. Here you'll find a variety of gorgeous gardens - including the Shinden Garden in a Chinese design; the... More
