Small, relatively open, but well maintained. Would have liked to do the Japanese Tea Ceremony, but it is still suspended due to the Covid virus.

We enjoyed a nice scenic stroll in the garden. I really liked the Japanese style and took lots of pictures.

I have to say, this is a magical little garden. Clean, well-kept, and beautiful, and the koi and turtles are really pretty adorable. We sat by the edge of the pond and relaxed for a while in the peaceful atmosphere. I would easily and heartily recommend this to anyone.

Three of us had such a nice peaceful stroll through the gardens! Not sure it would have been as quiet if not for Covid. We also came on a weekday. The gardens were beautiful, koi were active, we even saw the turtles, and great spider webs!

This is definitely worth a visit if you enjoy Japanese gardens. Thankfully on the day I went there were very few people. The koi and turtles in the pond were great! I also very much liked the lily pads with flowers.

After running around Seattle and all of the activities, you should stop here to take your breath. A quiet stop in a bustling city. The location is away from the center of the city but not that far away. We happened to be staying nearby so were able to walk over and then get an Uber to downtown after. Take the time to slowly walk around and look at all there is to take in from every angle. We went on a hot summer day and there was not a crowd so we were able to sit a few times and just relax. There is a large variation of flora in these well-manicured gardens. Beautiful and tranquil.

It's not a large garden and can easily be covered in a couple of hours, but what a tranquil and serene piece of paradise. The architecture and design cleverly captures the Japanese philosophy of peace and rest, and it does wonders for the hectic soul.

If you ever need to reset your perspective and focus on whatever is on your mind, a few hours in this magical garden could do the trick for you.

This is a small but very pretty garden. It was full
of people and yet everyone was quiet and respectful. The fall foliage was just starting to show through and it was a lovely scene.

One of the best Asian gardens I’ve been to! This one is advertised as one of the most authentic in the US, and I’ve now been to gardens in Portland, San Diego and Seattle; I can say that Seattle is right up there with the best of them!

Gardens have iconic Japanese Maple trees, as seen in photos. Fall is a special time as is spring. Takes 2-3 hours. Lots of nice strolls in nature.
