We visited this garden along with the Botanic Gardens. I'm not sure you can do it by itself so you will have to pay for the other tour and see it near the end of the other garden. That being said, the Japanese garden was my favorite part of the garden tour. It has a lot of water and you can spend time feeding the fish. When you pay for the Botanic gardens make sure you purchase bags of fish food since they do not have machines to purchase them in the garden. We purchased the large bags and my kids spent almost an hour feeding the fish and turtles - this was the highlight of their garden experience. They also had some brown water snakes swimming around in the water which was fun to watch (they never came close to the shore so you don't have to be worried that they will get too close). If you come to the Botanic Gardens plan to spend most of your time in the Japanese Garden.

We went on Easter Sunday and there were very few people walking around so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Beautiful colors despite not much blooming. I would love to come back to spend more time in the summer when it is in it's glory.

This is an amazingly beautiful place. It is peaceful and dynamic at the same time. I don’t even know where to begin. There are unique sculptures, so many varieties of plants, and some great architecture as well. Another reviewer mentioned the koi, but there is so much more wildlife in garden. We go every chance we get to see how the garden changes through the seasons.

I’ve been to many similar gardens in America and Japan, but this garden rivals the some of the best including the garden in San Francisco. The ambiance and details make it unique. The arched bridge needs repair, but I understand that replacement is planned soon. The koi and water features add interest and delight for children and adults. The garden shop has a great mix of authentic items at reasonable prices and includes things like bonsai, umbrellas, tea sets chimes and more. This is a must see in the Fort Worth Botanical Garden.

One of the largest of all the Japanese Gardens we've seen. It is amazing when we were there and must be breathtaking when all the cherry blossoms are blooming.
Lovely walkways and bridges, koi fish to feed, a serene place to be. A gift shop is
near the top of the garden with a huge selection of crafts, jewelry and handmade items.
A tram can give you a ride back to the beginning of the botanical garden...just ask the
salesperson in charge of the gift shop when the tram is scheduled to be there.
I just hope to check this out when more is blooming. If you love gardens, don't miss it.
Restrooms next to the big doors on the right side...separate entrances.

This was a very beautiful and peaceful place. Very clean and well taken care of. They had fish food for you to feed the fish. It was a rather long walk through and it ends at the opposite side of the entrance so the walk back to your car was quite far! But overall very beautiful place and would definitely recommended professional pictures done here.

Beautiful day at the Botanical Garden, Japanese Garden area. This was back on November 20th 2020. Day was a bit cold, but the picture came out pretty decent. Taken with a OnePlus 5T and enhanced with SnapSeed.

My son and I walked the gardens during the week. We nearly had the gardens to ourselves, and were truly able to enjoy the serene landscape. This is a beautiful and affordable place to visit for a long afternoon. Would make a great date too!

While 90% of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden is free to the public, you will have to pay a small admission fee to see the fall colors in the Japanese Garden. Stroll the garden, the winding paths lead you through tranquil landscapes and water features. The Garden consists of 7.5 acres filled with cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bamboo, bridges, and ponds which are home to over 1,200 Koi fish. The garden a fall festival when you can enjoy traditional Japanese dance, martial arts, sword demonstrations, raku pottery and traditional tea ceremonies in the garden.

We decided to go to the Japanese Gardens in early March because we had out-of-town visitors who expressed an interest. The admission fee is $7 per person. I understand why the FWBG decided to implement an admission fee years ago to pay for the upkeep. The area is serene and potentially beautiful, but in the middle of winter, if is not very pretty. I think we counted two blooming tress and only a handful of flowers. We could have easily seen everything to see in about 20 minutes so it is just not a good value in winter. Perhaps they could consider lowering the fee out of flowering season. I would not discourage visits in the summer.
