This is a very nice well kept garden and a place to take some time to "smell the roses". However I have seen better. Wish there were better labeling of some of the plants.

Great outdoors spot with lots of light and natural serenity. Close enough to Saratoga that you don't feel like you are driving to no-man's land, but once in, you feel quite far from everything else and are in your own little world.

Although what is there is interesting, it is much too small for the entrance fee. I was okay with the pricing because I viewed it as a donation without a tax deduction.

Of course, the Spring heralds the blossoming of the entire garden but don't skip this amazing garden simply because you're in town during the "off seasons". I have visited the Hakone Gardens in every season and it never disappoints. I always bring my guests for a visit to this peaceful beautiful example of a well designed Japanese garden. Even folks that aren't huge garden fans will find something to draw their interest, whether that be the interesting architecture of the buildings, the escape from the hectic life of the city, the views of the mountains or the fascinating history of the garden.

Wonderful peaceful place for strolling and zenning out. Amazing beautiful gardens not too far outside of Saratoga -- photographers dream spot! :)
