The pictures of the garden on their website does no justice to the actual landscape!
It's huge and open so if it's summer I would suggest bringing an umbrella, as this is a minimalist garden and has little shade. It's a mix of small flower/ rock gardens and open vast spaces with water features.
You also have a Bonsai tree exhibition, shop and traditional sculptures.
It's very unusual to see something like this set in a flat Lithuania landscape.
Beautiful and inspiration 🥰

This place was way too big and the concept of a Japanese garden was lost. It has been a cold spring so the bonsai were only just budding. Other than that there was little to see. I guess on a warm sunny day it maybe nice to sit on a bench somewhere but having been to Japan I struggled to correlate this garden to a much smaller Japanese garden. Maybe in the next 100 years it may fill out and look less like a golf course.

The garden was a bit hard to find, but worth it. Created by some enthusiasts who wanted to make "a garden of which Japan would be proud" and helped by some experts from Japan, it really looks nice and authentic.
The territory was very huge and they have only developed about a 1/5th of it, but they have big plans, so each visit of this park could bring a new surprise. The garden had small tea house, ponds, small spring, stone gardens, and even something like a bonzai school, where they could be seen in various stages and ages. It appears that they are also making bonzai care lessons and selling them.
We were there in September evening, so it was very calm and peaceful, but I'm sure it's beautiful in every season.
To find them easier, it might be worth consulting their homepage - http://japangarden.lt/en/planuoti-vizita/.

First of all I must admit, I am rather sceptic about the fashion of Japanese gardens to be set all around the world. And this one in Mazuciai has one more of cons – megalomania. They are trying to make it huge. The result is some strange cross between a golf field and an oriental garden. As in most parts it is rather open, it is difficult to sit and contemplate if the weather is not prepossessing: too cold, too hot and sunny or it is raining. By setting the garden, the owners probably did not think that loamy soil and water chemistry in Lithuania will not allow to keep ponds and springs crystal clear, so the contemplation is at a murky pond with its usual dwellers: stickleback fishes and black leeches. Or if it is running water – it is equally murky, full of algae and detritus. Some older parts of the garden are quite nice, though, though hardly worth going nowhere by a dusty gravelly road and paying 6 euro for entrance. However, to be truthful, there are pros, too. In places, there are very noteworthy areas where Japanese garden masters combined local plants and landscape features into a Japanese garden pattern and this is really remarkable. Another thing - these Gardens are very much loved by local people, they are important cultural point with quite a few events happening. And finally, I always admire enthusiasm of people who create things in nowhere from nothing: the Gardens are set amidst unprepossessing agricultural landscape.

I mean, it is a garden and it is supposed to be full of trees and flowers. I think the size matters and this was just made too big. We spend 2hours wandering around in heat without really seeing anything. The park entrance is beautiful and thats how I imagined it to be. Thats how all of it should have looked like.

3/5 because we will visit again and hope stuff have improved over a year.

Sadly the homepage is mostly not in english and there are almost NO updates online about if it is worth to visit NOW or if the trees are not blossom etc. So its a 50/50 chance... eh...

Japanese garden is a unique space in the Baltic countries for different family oriented, cultural, business events in the open air or in temporary lightweight construction tents.

You should not miss the opportunity to take a walk through the park, participate in the process of park's design, relax and meditate.
