  • Exhibition house by architect Tadao Ando, as well as Dr. Tomitaro Makino presentation... both impressive. This is a botanical garden and tropical greenhouses in the vast grounds, even on a rainy day where you can enjoy. Can you go on a sunny day it is the BEST....

  • Go inside the garden, as if walking into the bush general. Show a variety of plants, the United States and the victory. If you like flowers, this is a nice spot. Outside the exhibition area is very wide, unfortunately, in the winter to visit.

  • Very nice multi-level botanical garden featuring local plants and tree. Use the My-Yu bus to get there! Some explanations in English. Nice permanent exhibition. Ticket is valid for the full day.
  • This is an excellent place to pass the afternoon. There is a stunning variety of plants here, and the mountain itself features panorama views of Kochi and its surroundings. It's most convenient to rent a car and drive here, although there is inexpensive regular bus service from Kochi Station as well.
