The garden was built by Mr. Adachi Kenko to preserve the art and beauty of a Japanese garden. It balances natural beauty and human artistic creativity. He donated the garden to the Japanese government for the enjoyment of the public. It was autumn and the...More

So many reviews concern only the garden (which is a beautiful example of shared view). But the museum itself is wonderful. And it is large. The autumn 2018 show is beautifully created. One area contrasts paintings by Yokoyama Taikan with others on similar themes by...More

We came for the wonderful garden but we found the art much more interesting than we thought it would be.

I visited this most beautiful garden in autumn and spring. I understood this garden had different faces with colorful temptations. Like Venezia city in Italy, we want to visit there at least one times our lifetime. 四季折々の表情がとても良い。外国人におススメと言われるが、日本人も一度は訪れたい。しかし、いつ行くのが良いかと問われれば、秋をお勧めしたい。借景による遠景の山が見事なほどに、色ずく。

It's quite far away. It takes about 3.5 - 4 hours from Kyoto to Yasugi (about 390 km). It will cost around 12,000 yen (one way). Take the Nozomi bullet train from Kyoto to Okayama (it's 3 stops). Then, transfer to the JR... More
