Quiet place to enjoy...
Feb 2019 • Solo
Over my time living in Nagoya, I've come to consider Shirotori Garden to be my favorite place in Nagoya. Granted, that might not be saying much, as this is a city not exactly known for sightseeing. However, this is a lovely place to spend an hour or two on a nice day. Entrance is 300 yen currently. There are multiple areas to view the large ponds with koi fish (you can receive a cup of fish food for 50 yen to feed them), a couple waterfalls, a picturesque tea house, a cafe with great matcha, a small, but adequate bamboo "forest", a lawn, and various plants and trees (each with something to offer over the seasons). I've never seen the garden crowded and usually there is just a small handful of people walking around with cameras in hand. It's also close enough to Atsuta Jingu if you're looking for another nearby place to check out. I highly recommend this garden.

Relax and feel the Zen
Aug 2018 • Family
A few stops away from the city at Jingu-Nishi station is a beautiful park. Immediately feel the peace as you stroll through the idyllic garden.
We had an extra morning a decided to come here. We are glad we came. Even my teenaged daughter thought it was beautiful.
If you just stroll through, the gardens can be covered in 1 hour. For a more leisurely stroll 2 hours.
Entrance fee is only 300 yen. It closes at 5pm.

Quality Japanese Garden
Aug 2018 • Couples
Like other parks for which you have to pay a fee, this garden is closed on Mondays. We returned the next day and the garden was as expected: elaborately landscaped, quite varied in themes and relaxing.

Beautiful Japanese gardens
Mar 2018 • Solo
A must visit in Nagoya,
Beautiful gardens, with ponds, bridges, flowers, a bamboo grove, koi carp, tea house and restaurant. It’s very scenic and a lovely way to spend an hour/two hours. It is a little walk from the train station, and in the middle of a quiet housing area so make sure you get the directions before you go. But well worth a visit for a traditional Japanese garden.

A delightful visit to a quiet Japanese garden
Apr 2018 • Friends
We visited during strictly speaking the "off-season", when cherry blossoms were gone. Yet the Garden with its delightful design and moderate size makes it a very worthwhile place to visit for those who do not have too much time to spend but would like to have a real taste of an authentic Japanese garden.

Night time autumn illumination event
Nov 2017 • Couples
We were lucky to go there on the night that the autumn illumination event is free!
They have an art exhibition in the garden and we could see that they put a lot of effort in getting the lighting for the art exhibits correctly.
This is good because I have been to places that don't illuminate the exhibits well and it's hard to see them or take photos of them.
If I go to Nagoya again, would consider going there in the daytime and going to the tea place.
It wasn't open during the night event. It is situated in the middle of the pond in the garden and I think it would look really nice and peaceful to sit there, enjoying the view whilst having some Japanese sweet and tea.
