Came here for the afternoon and it was so peaceful and tranquil, could not here the traffic on the nearby Mayor Magrath. The gardens and view were exceptional. Would return again to clear the mind

“A must see Site when in Lethbridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Friends I took to Nikka Yuko Gardens were amazed after recounting the experience of the visit.
The quiet beauty of the Gardens inspired them to reflect and recount things and experiences past.
I have been to the Gardens many times and I never tire of them.

“Visit to Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Considered to be one of the top ten Japanese Gardens in North America. Very compact and well done. A peaceful place to be....away from noise and the busyness of a city. Perficet place for quiet and meditation.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Get set for another culture in the heart of the west. A Japanese environment that is inspiring to see and walk through. Serene, calm and beautiful are just a few words to describe this wonderful garden.

“Serenity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This garden acknowledges a part of Second World War history during many Japanese people were forcibly moved from the coast of British Columbia to the Lethbridge area at the beginning of the war. The garden is meticulously maintained. Definitely not a place to visit if you are in a rush.
