We have viewed the garden several times to experience the peaceful tranquility of the lake and its surroundings. Walk right round and soak in the atmosphere. We are always impresssed with the attention to detail by the horticulural staff who maintain pathways, shrubs and plants.

I would definitely go to the cafe for tea and sweets looking out over the garden.
The front of the garden sells steamed sweet potato manjuu that's very tasty too.
