A beautiful museum & garden. The museum is full of Japanese art, clothing and miniature house rooms. The gardens are beautiful and very well keep. You won't be disappointed. If you have an hour or two, head their way.

It is a great place to go with family or friends and have a quiet peaceful day. You can walk around the beautiful grounds, have a nice lunch or picnic and enjoy a day doing something different.

When you step in you just cannot believe how beautiful this place is. When everything else seems to be just so crowded and loud, this becomes such a welcomed change. Gardens are impecable. However I just think the staff needs to lighten up a little. I have been there with my two kids. As soon as I go in I... More

I went in wanting to try the whole experience, the Cafe left a lot to be desired. First the sign says wait to be seated, finally someone says sit anywhere then next thing a lady is saying to follow her. We order, food was ok. service was lacking to say the least, I ask for the bill. I sign and... More

Went to Sushi & Stroll night fir the first time. Well worth the price to see the gardens, have some wine, sushi and hear Fushu Daiko perform. The only glitch was that the lines for the drinks and food were so long, we had to give up eating so that we could go hear the drummers instead. They might try... More

While this tourist attraction might not be everyone's cup of tea--as an avid hobby gardener--I was mesmerized. Each of the 6 gardens was lovely in it's own way. The exhibit of bonsai trees was amazing. So many were types of trees I never dreamed could be miniaturized this way. The Samurai exhibit in the museum section was remarkable. The exhibit... More

Very beautiful gardens and informative tour. Plants in the gardens were labeled with information as to what they were and their significance. I particularly enjoyed the recreation of a Japanese classroom with all of its instructional materials as well as the recreation of the Japanese homes. Various styles of gardens throughout Japanese history were represented along with their historical significance.

We spent a lovely day walking the gardens. All your senses will be touched here....from the sounds of nature, to the sights of the ponds and gardens. There are koi and turtles to add to your experience of delight...and bamboo that sings in the breeze. The garden cafe is a wonderful place to rest and have lunch. Our meal there... More

One word can describe this place: peaceful. It is so beautiful, lots of flowers and a good restaurant where you can get a little snack.

Beautiful location and thoughtful layout. Many shaded rest areas and cold drinking water on the paths. If you go now, don't miss museum exhibit of the small paper sculptures which are fascinating.
