Our guide recommended to visit the garden. No regrets at all, I have seen a lot of beautiful trees. The garden is really nice to visit, entrance fee only 4€ and you got a ticket to taste a local liquor.

This garden was planted over 150 years ago as the owner gathered plants from around the world. He introduced Japanese cryptomeria to the islands. There are a few trees still growing (notably a giant fig) that he planted. I was impressed by large trees of...More
