A very well kept Japanese garden. Come in for the beautiful garden and stay for the koi and exotic birds :) Try to avoid weekends!

If I lived close-by, I would come here all the time. However, as a visitor, I found it to be small and not worth the trip. We timed our visit when we could buy tickets to a Japanese tea ceremony, though, and that made it...More
