This is a traditional & typical Japanese-style garden with ponds & streams that include rambling paths & foot bridges. The crown jewel is a three-storied Pagoda that sits high atop the hill overlooking the grounds that include over 300 cherry blossom trees.

We took a taxi to the gardens from our hotel simply because it was time efficient. Love to visit the gardens again in Spring.
