  • This place was beautiful, it was still quite cold at the end of winter/ start of spring. The garden was still really pretty and overall a lovely experience. The staff were friendly, and the man that showed us in was so excited to show us around outside
  • I was there in the memorial day (can't remember exactly). Huge villa and stunning garden. The staff was very nice and clvery polite. Surrounding park was also very beautiful.
  • Beautiful Villa and gardens. Make sure to get the audio tour to learn a little about the villa and the recent renovations. It's worthwhile seeing.
  • Definitely worth a visit, if you are just a little bit into history and Japanese architecture.
  • Stunning residence and history. Beautiful gardens. Quaint town.
