Very beautiful garden in every season! Even in winter, it offered us some charming views. Besides, there is an atmospheric tea house with traditional desserts and matcha) Besides, Yoshikien garden is just a few steps away, and it’s free for foreign visitors!

Family initially didn't want to pay the entrance fee of 900 yen, but came out feeling that this was one of the highlights in Nara. The concept of 'borrowing scenery' is in full display in the Garden. I think I enjoyed it more than the...More
