Beautiful Japanese Garden
Nov 2019 • Family
I don't know why, this beautiful garden was not in my visit list in Osaka. In fact, it is the best Japanese Garden I've ever visited and it should be at top 10 most visited place in Japan. We went there when the autumn color at its peak. It so beautiful and gave us the real Japanese garden touch.
This garden is actually inside of the huge Daisen garden where cherry trees will show its beautiful Sakura flower sometime in April. I can't imagine how beautiful it is, since so many cherry trees in the garden. Definitely it will be my target place for next Japan trip on cherrt blossom period !

Beautiful!

The garden was not too large, only took me about 1 hour to finish. However, it was one the most beautiful ones in Japan I had ever visited. I loved it!

The best garden we have seen
Nov 2017 • Friends
This is the best garden we had come across. Well maintained, peaceful and photo worthy from almost all angles.

The entry fee is Y200. We also had green tea with sweets (Y300) while enjoying the tranquil scenery which really left us awestruck. It is off the beaten track and there were not many tourists. We were able to take poster-like photos. There were 2 couples taking bridal photos. We spent 2 hours exploring the garden.

Japanese Garden in Daisen Park
Nov 2017 • Solo
This Japanese garden is not busy. You can stroll around pond very leisurely. And photo shooting for the wedding is doing often. So you have a chance to see wedding couple who are wearing traditional wedding Kimono.

Can't get close to this giant tomb itself, but see parts of it and visit the museum
Apr 2017 • Friends
This "kofun" is one of 40-odd giant tumuli (monumental burial sites) of hundreds, maybe thousands, that were scattered across archaic Japan (from the so-called "Wa" era, as the ancient Chinese called the kingdom of Japan then). It is compared to the great pyramids in scale. Today the giant mound is forested, but originally its different layers were covered with stones and on its terraces were hundreds of clay haniwa figures (fragments of which are in the museum). The central sarcophagus I believe has never been excavated. The massive sarcophagus of one retainer is represented in the museum, along with armor, weapons, etc. You can find aerial views of the entire "keyhole" shaped kofun online. The surrounding park is good for walks, etc.

Beautiful and less crowd.
Apr 2017 • Couples
Daisen Park may not be at top sightseeing spot for tourist. I found it by chance while searching for less crowded sightseeing places. Glad that I found and went there instead of Osaka Castle which I had visited before. The Japanese Garden inside Daisen Park is beautiful, it certainly worth the small admission fee.

Wonderful Japanese Garden Year Round
Nov 2015 • Couples
This garden is inside the Daisen Park which is adjacent to several "KEYHOLE" shaped ancient Imperial Burial Grounds dating back to the 5th century Emperor Nintoku. There is a great cafe close to the station that is reasonably priced under 1200 yen per person!

It's a beautiful place especially during autumn :)
Oct 2015 • Friends
The Japanese Garden is a must place to visit if you are in Sakai. It comes with very fresh air and it's surrounded with a very nice view during autumn season. They served me with green tea and the Japanese sweets in the Japanese Garden. From this event, I managed to experience the culture of Japanese by trying them, also it's a nice place to feel the real Japanese atmosphere.

Great introduction to Japanese Gardens and beautiful stroll
Apr 2015 • Couples
The brochure gives a nice description of the elements of Japanese gardens and the elaborate and kind of whimsical symbolism of the various elements (in this case a pond representing the ocean and the opposite side representing China, but also representations of symbols of auspiciousness and longevity such as dragons or cranes or tortoises, or representations of utopia). There is a neat winding water path carved in granite that is a reference to a poetry drinking game and an exhibit of peonies (?) matched with paper parasols.

Beautiful in Autumn
Nov 2014 • Friends
A small enclosed Japanese garden located in a large park sprawled over a vast area. Need to pay 100 yen to enter the garden. The Japanese maple trees are a sight to behold during late autumn! Wheelchair accessible. Family friendly. Treat for photographers, both amateur and professional.
