I love this place, we took a lot of pictures. Not too crowded during our visit so we really enjoyed the beauty of nature. The koi fishes have bright colors, and the water at the pond is clean.

Tokugawa Garden and Tokugawa Art Museum is one of the Me~guru Nagoya Sightseeing Route Bus. The garden is peaceful and serene housing a beautifully landscaped Japanese garden decorum of the early Edo period. Very historical and worth a visit!

Went here last feb 2016. Such a wonderful place to visit. I was in awe of the garden. There is a restaurant located inside and also offers a view of the garden. Saw people taking a prenuptial shop in the garden while I was there. If u love nature, this is one of the places that u must visit.

This garden lived up to my expectations of what a Japanese garden should be. I loved seeing the couples having there picture taken and the pond water was crystal clear so the fish were easy to photo graph. The restaurant looked amazing and if we had one more day I would have been back for lunch. The garden is conveniently... More

We did not visit the art museum due to the lack of time, so we opted to just visit the gardens. It was definitely a good decision! There were volunteers who were explaining on the plants in the area. There was also a small man-made waterfall there. Very relaxing! The big pond in the center of the garden has the... More

The garden is in a good size with various scenes. It has nice landscape, but not many flowers. There are two waterfalls, one is natural, and the other is artificial. Also, there is a big pond with several bridges. The routes are easy to walk around. Good for the elders and children. The walk around the garden would take about... More

A beautiful garden. Less busy then gardens in Kyoto. Green, luscious, and peaceful. Worth seeing if you want a place to enjoy nature and some calmer moments on your trip.
