We spent a warm and sunny weekday morning casually walking the garden paths of this garden and stopping to take photos from strategic vantage points, The Japanese garden is beautiful and the history behind this garden is wonderful to know and it gives you a sense of appreciation of why it is there.. We enjoyed the opportunity to sit on... More

This is a charming and interesting Museum and Japanese Garden! The Garden celebrates a century old connection between Japan and South Florida in the early 1900's. We spent 3 1/2 hours there walking the gardens and enjoying an outstanding lunch. The history of the garden is fascinating and the gardens are beautifully done. Since it is a Japanese garden and...

A visit here is a wonderful change from the beach and the shore experience. Our only regret was having only an hour to see the gardens. It is a unique experience and gives the visitor a sense of the historical place of Japanese gardens in society.

Had a great day at these Gardens. Started with a delicious (and inexpensive) lunch - don't miss the lunch! Great pace for a slow meandering. I know they intentionally don not label most plants but we would have preferred to have them identified.

The garden designs, the water features, the explanations of the different types and evolution of garden design in Japan was so helpful, and certainly enriched our experience. There are many places to sit and comtemplate the surroundings which I loved, and supply of fresh water along the paths was so thoughtful. The exhibits are very interesting as well. The lunches...

What a beautiful, peaceful and well-layed out attraction. We enjoyed every part of it. We did not have the time to truly do justice to the attraction and could not eat there, but found it relaxing non-the-less.

Pleasant and serene gardens...comfortable trails. History, sushi and bamboo trees. Great place to spend a cool South Florida day. I went with a large group and we had an amazing time. I look forward to a return in April! TIP...eat early at the cafe, wear comfortable shoes and come prepared for a change in weather -- we experienced rain, heat... More

Would you believe that there was an early 1900's Japanese settlement in South Florida? a few japanese families came down to Delray Beach and started a settlement. They didnt flourish but eventually a beautiful Japanese garden and Musem came out of it. The main building is very nice with a gift shop (nice stuff), a museum and a small restaurant... More
