Lunch on their covered outdoor patio was a comfortable and delicious introduction to a delightful afternoon walk through the gardens. We each had a BENTO BOX, including one of our group who is vegan; we all enjoyed the colorful and tasty mix of foods. The...More

I visited the Morikami gardens for an impromptu wedding with some great friends. The area was very nice, although some quite funky smells in some areas. Lots of interesting wildlife to see up close.
