What a beautiful area! The garden is quite large and very impressive. It is very serene, with several areas where you can seat yourself and take in the amazing sights. I would not recommend this for young children as it might be difficult for them to keep entertained and could be disturbing to other patrons. There were two gentlemen that were extremely rude and were talking loudly on their cell phones when it was specifically prohibited. The price is a bit of a deterrent as it is around $10 for adults.

This is a beautiful place to visit. It's fun to go different seasons of the year because it changes so much. Great place if you want to get out in nature and have a good walk.

My son and daughter in law took us to the japanese gardens for our visit. They were beautiful and well worth the money, not expensive. The people were very helpful and the flowers and tress were great. The tea room is a must. Cant wait to go back again, they said there is always something new blooming.

The peace and beauty. Sound of water and gentle music. In February it was a little cool but still very enjoyable
