The garden was good sized - but not huge. But it was extremely well done. Viweing the trees/plants from the many paths was a genuinely & visually pleasing experience.

A visit to the Japanese Garden is a must if you appreciate good taste and beautiful design. We explored it in a different manner: walked in a 8 infinite line format, crisscrossing the same point and exploring new sets of flowers, trees and landscaping. Wow!...More

This is a small Japanese garden in the Capitol Hill area. It is not too far from downtown but a car makes it convenient. There were lots of iris in bloom when we were they.

Beautiful garden, but it was a little too crowded to be peaceful when I went. And I thought the entrance fee ($8) was a little steep given the size of the garden.

Beautiful and serene Japanese garden in Seattle. Definitely worth a visit and a peaceful stroll next to trickling streams, babbling brooks and koi ponds with lily pads. Get your cameras ready for a bunch of pictures, almost every turn there is something worth admiring and...More

Absolutely lovely! The colors of the maples enhanced the light of the afternoon. It’s small with easy trails and each one offers a new vista! Well worth your time. A perfect way to end a day.

This is a wonderful and serene spot highly recommended for fellow travelers. It is a peaceful place to enjoy nature (and that is saying a lot given the magnified verdant nature of Seattle). We spent a lovely evening there, enjoying the atmosphere, fellow visitors and...More
