I suspect this location is mostly used for wedding photographs, it is so beautiful. We were short of time so we had to walk around in less than 30 minutes but I wished I had an hour or two to really enjoy this place. The water, bushes, trees and flowers are all arranged in that uniquely Japanese way where everything... More

This garden was unexpectedly nice during my visit though it was winter. Yet there were lots to photograph and there was even a small cherry blossom tree.

An amazing Japanese garden, really purely cultural and so relaxing. The fishpond has huge fishes and it was amazing just to sit at the side of the pond watching them approaching me for some food.

This place is a very big Japanese style garden. It'll take a couple of hours to walk around it. Around October when leaves turn red or yellow, it is fantastic to walk around there at night. There are also an art museum and a library in there.

This is a beautiful garden with lots of winding paths, bridges, stairways and vistas. The autumn colours are coming in some of the very special maples. Water figures largely ... streams, water falls and causeways, with the lake itself as a centre piece . The use of rocks... large and small give added drama. The plantings are imaginative, varied and... More

Our enduring memory will be the lovely garden cafe that gave us shelter (and delicious food off a smallish menu) from the pouring rain before we walked round the lake that boasts some absolutely enormous koi carp that would be award-winning anywhere else in the world. Half lake and half woodland, this was well worth the trip (about 5 km,... More

Beautiful garden any visitors to Nagoya shouldn't be missed, and it will be even more gorgeous in autumn when the leaves start to change colour. The garden was built by the second head of the Owari Tokugawa family - Tokugawa Mitsutomo, and was donated to Nagoya city by the 19th head of the family - Tokugawa Yoshichika - in 1931.... More

This was actually my second visit to the gardens since living near Nagoya five years ago. It has long been one of my favorite places to relax and rewind from the stress of big city living. Thankfully, it is usually serene and uncrowded except for the occasional wedding photos. The garden features several waterfalls and traditional garden landscaping, including various... More
