These gardens aren't going to blow your sox off but if you're sick of humanity and want a quiet reprieve, the 8 peso entry fee is enough to keep crowds down (unless you have the misfortune of arriving when a school trip is visiting). As other reviewers have said, these grounds don't compare to a real japanese garden but there are carp in the water and a few bridges and bonsai trees strategically placed. I've had green tea at the community center/restaurant and I can attest to the authenticity of the azuki bean paste tea biscuits! yummy!
