Tokugawa Garden, Nagoya

(4.1/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Wander around Tokugawa Garden, 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.

  • 非常美丽的古代园林。深秋去的,游客不是很多,十分幽静的感觉。遍地金黄或火红的秋天景色。可以看到许多当地的年轻人穿着古装或动漫服装进行摄影活动。

  • 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.
