After you pay admission, there is a 5 minute presentation about the origin of the gardens. Docents are available to provide information and they are extremely helpful. There is an area concerning Japanese culture and there is... More

I have been to this place many times, ever since my kids were little, is a good place to relax and enjoy nature, and to get to know more about japanese culture.

To begin, I gave this three stars not because of the garden, but because of the restaurant. The gardens are beautiful, peaceful, and beautifully maintained. However the restaurant is a disaster!!! Both times we have eaten there, we've had problems. Excuse the cliche but today took the cake! We ordered a simple lunch, two egg rolls and tea. We waited... More

Take your time, walk all the paths, explore the little coves and gardens within the Gardens. It's refreshing to the spirit, good for the soul.

What a beautiful park. The history is very interesting but the walk to through the park is amazing. There were a number of wheelchairs going through the paths too.

is considered by the Japanese to be the finest gardens outside the country of Japan. It is a 9/10 mile walking tour along the lake with numerous waterfalls, wildlife and a small museum. It's worth the visit. You might even see an iguana or two as we did! Opens at 10am; get there by then to have the place mostly... More
