Not easy to get to. From the Train station, need to take a bus and another 15 min walk. But so worth it, gardens are beautifully kept. Lots of nook and corners to explore and see. Hot spot for bridal photography.

This garden is a must go visit during the cherry blossom period. Its landscaping is simply gorgeous. While the entrance fee is steep and a good 20-30min walk from the nearest JR station, it is absolutely worth your time and effort. While there were lots...More
