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!

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...More

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.

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...More

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!

Easy to find on city map. Great to visit if you are riding a bicycle. Nice to see this is where a lot of locals go to relax and just hang out. Park was well laid out and is larger than I expected.
