Gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. We enjoyed the tour, the docent was very knowledgeable. We were impressed with the attention to detail, the artistry, and of course the tea house! So worth stopping in. There's much for the eyes to observe and the soul to consider.

It’s difficult to believe that you were in the heart of the city. It is such a serene and peaceful area. Don’t miss this and the Japanese garden. Incredible flowers and trees and pathways. Nice gift shop, too.

This was a stop on our City Tour and it was breathtaking. Every time we looked on a different direction or walked to a different section of the garden, we were awestruck. It didn't hurt that the crysanthemums were in bloom! Great little tea house,...More

We visited the Garden on a rainy, November day and were pleased to find most everything still in bloom. The gardens had a little bit of something for everyone in our group - a peaceful, zen like feeling for me, great photography spots for my...More
