We visited in autumn and some trees were looking just fine. The stroll garden surrounds a state guest house built by a Nagahama merchant for visits from the Meiji Emperor. We enjoyed wandering around the garden.

There are many fine stone lanterns tucked away in corners of the grounds. A few were particularly large and very photogenic. A pond, a bridge, a small Inari shrine and many plantings, all provide a welcome retreat.

Even without the bonsai festival for which the garden is famous, the grounds are worth a short visit. When we were there the paths were undergoing some kind of maintenance work - there were several blue tarps over areas and the paths were dug up in places. This did not prevent us from enjoying the peace and quiet of the garden. There were only two other visitors there while we were walking around. Even the children’s play yard in the back was empty.

Entrance to the grounds is free; there is a charge to visit the guest house.

We went here with our 2 year old daughter to play with their trains playground for a while. It was a bit crowded so it was difficult to find something to play that wasn't taken in the beginning. But it became a bit more empty toward lunch time so it was a good place to spend a bit of time and escape the heat outside.

The gardens were nice but not very special. That part might be a bit more interesting when the trees are blooming or when they have some exhibitions.

We made this our second stop in the area after first visiting Hikone Castle in the morning and then taking the train up to Nagahama to see the gardens and conservatory / museum that house the plum blossom trees in large and smaller pots on the first floor. These were of course in full bloom and spectacular. Unfortunately the gardens were not open on this Saturday in February though it was quite busy in the conservatory. We visited the first floor twice - deciding that seeing some of these ancient trees in blossom, one of which is 450 years old was well worth a second visit and taking your time. I don't know where else you can see such beauty from trees living between 250-400 years. Like Methuselah they seem to live forever and can keep their display of blooms with the love and careful attention they get by the care givers. They do have an information sheet in English if you ask for it - we did not but one of the fellows working there insisted on getting it for us and that was nice. If visiting Nagahama this should be on your list of top places to see but to check online or call about what is on display and to confirm days that are open and visiting hours.
