“When you like nature, this is simply superb !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Many arrangements of floral and small trees. The athmosphere is quiet. We were there during a rainy day and it did not disturb us at all. Loved it. Count at laest 2 hours and ensure you have comfortable shoes.

“Breathtaking --”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Bonsai's everywhere -- they really do take your breath away. Miniature trees that have been groomed and tended to with great deal of love and care. Truly amazing to see so many on display at the same time - at the same place. A fantastic place to visit

“Sanctuary in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Peaceful and calming. A definite must see when visiting the gardens. They also offer a short tour of their Japanese tea garden. It is limited to small groups, but they explain the importance of a tea garden and the tea ceremony in Japanese culture. The gardens are spectacular. Beautiful water features and trees.

“a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

This is quiet, lovely, flowers are nicely arranged; one could go there and read for an hour and continue visiting/walking.
Easy to access by subway/metro.
