Wander around Tokugawa-en, an elegant Japanese landscape full of history and serenity. The garden's origins date back to the Edo period; today it embodies the modern samurai culture. Walk through the original wooden black gate, which survived the destruction of World War II. Follow the stream from a majestic waterfall that flows to the central pond. As you explore, look for peonies, Japanese apricots, irises, maples, and camellias, depending on the season. Stop by the restaurant for some fine dining.

  • View apartment is a shame. You can't indulge in the Tokugawa-en. In this view is very helpful know it takes money to maintain a large garden for the unspeakable.

Lunch instead have many variations, and 浸rereba to the innate emotion and reach for the stars, sunny day and went out. Don't expect assortment I don't think I'm putting too much force with the meal I ordered Hayashi very polite as well as the satisfaction. Spending the time an adult very delicious desserts and coffee. Explore carefully at early flowering peonies are beautiful gardens and across the beautiful bride, become happy too. Figures from the back could go before the cold of the evening, in the parking lot near is the end. A special made me forget things in Nagoya City and the site.

  • For long overseas living, desperately want to tour Japan gardens, and I went to here. It is a place to really settle down. Able to take a lot of nice pictures and received a set menu of traditional Japanese style and Café on the premises. I think as well foreign tourists to take place, very recommended.

  • A paradisiac garden realized by the powerful Tokugawa clan. The plants are so grown that it seems to be in a sort of pluvial forest, so green! A big pond with Koi carps and a big variety of flowers everywhere. There is also a tea house nowadays used as restaurant for ceremonies like weddings. Amazing shop full of traditional souvenirs with Tokugawa "logo" on them.
  • The children love feeding the fish
  • A picturesque little garden.
  • きれい~ Good view and good to learn Japanese garden.
  • Annual Passport and. Senior couple spend time relaxing. Good walking course. Lots of big carp in the pond. Events such as the Peony exhibition and the tea party is. Pleasing brides and grooms, photography in the garden in Japanese style. They sell used books and painting. Japan House Café-restaurant is a Charter for wedding ceremonies on weekends and holidays, so pay attention. Green tea powder is recommended. Hashed beef rice and. High Museum of art's lunch, reservations required.
