Most beautiful garden with a small entry fee. We were quite happy walk around and also to sit and watch the fabulous surroundings.

I think it is one of the most best gardens I have seen. It has a tea shop place where you can sit and enjoy just a set of tea. It is very present place in my view.

Close to the memorial park and the castle. Beautifully layed out and tended with a nice tea house/shop. Well worth a visit.

Right in the city this tranquil park with intimate lakes and bridges is dominated by modern buildings on the skyline. You can visit the 200 year old Ginkgo tree that survived the A bomb.

We visited this garden on our last morning in Hiroshima before flying back to Australia. Talk about saving the best until last! This small, but perfectly formed garden is tucked in amongst shops, schools and apartment buildings and it is truly an oasis. The lake...More
