This is a very pretty place, to go for a walk or coffee. It's clean, well organized. I heard that they have a lantern festival which is very nice!

We went there to do the Sushi & Stroll. They have cool gardens and beautiful grounds. Worth the time spent. Sushi & Stroll is ok. The sushi is pre-made (think Publix), but still good. Bring your camera because there are some beautiful spaces to photograph. Perfect for an early romantic stroll before going out.

This is a place of beauty and reflection. The gardens are world class and as you melt into the beauty you also learn what it was to be a Japanese American at the turn of the last century in Florida.

Morikami is a beautiful way to spend a day, or at least an afternoon. There is a great audio tour that you can access via a smart phone, as well as a very informative visitor's guide to the gardens. If you're fond of nature photography, you'll have a lot of shots to take. And since it's a walking tour you... More

My husband and I visited on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We had a wonderful lunch of sushi, sea weed salad, and cloudy saki. We then walked around the serenely meticulous gardens, complete with waterfalls, coy ponds, and bonsai trees. We also learned about the early Japanese settlement Yamato, which I was not aware of prior. All this and we braved... More

They also have a main building containing very interesting Japanese exhibitions that change every few months. There is also a library and programs given, and a delightful gift shop. I buy my Japanese Green Tea there at very reasonable prices, lovely jewelry, scarves, a type of jacket that is specifically Japanese in beautiful patterns. My friend and I have our... More

Unlike many botanical gardens, Morikami is not full of flowerbeds and people. Walking the winding paths through the woods to the various gardens is truly balm for the soul. The gardens fit so well into the landscape, and the natural woods surround them so you feel you are always in nature, not in a museum. I will definitely return there... More

This is a very nice place to visit, it is so quiet and peaceful, i would love to be able to see more of the japanese culture in the museum, it is very enjoyable to walk thru the gardens. The little store has so many cute things.... And the food in the cafe is fresh, good and unexpensive. The staff... More
