When I entered the gardens, it just looked like a small formal garden. However, once you start down some paths, you will enjoy a variety of flowers and plants that are very beautiful. There were some bell-like flowers that were very large and beautiful!

It's worth visiting because of the sea candle tower. In addition, I saw some gardens and restaurant. If you understand Japanese, you can enjoy the small museum also.

I visited Enoshima for an evening trip and the garden was gorgeous! Since most flowers don't grow in the winter in this area, the garden was covered entirely of Christmas lights with light tunnels you can walk through. Even the observatory was beautifully decorated. Definitely...More
