    One of the three great gardens of Japan. Okayama Castle walk while, bumming all hope lost heat, took a rest in a tea shop. Beside the Teahouse and tea plantations, tea gold condensed milk over ice. In the garden has a large pond, Creek flow around it, accentuated the coolness. It is regrettable when it's hot in the summer, so too had no flowers. A beautiful season flowers shall I come next time.

    The most beautiful large garden that I've visited in Japan! Very scenic and spacious, with great views of Okayama Castle. Koi ponds with turtles as well, bamboo woods, tea garden, rice fields, historic rest houses, stone foot bridges. Simply too much to list here. The best walking space in my travels in Japan so far!

    A very beautiful and lovely garden, with many things to see everywhere. A big park too with a few restaurants and you can rent a boat too(under the bridge). You have to pay to enter, but there is no fee for children/teens aged under 18.

    It's really a beautiful garden. The sequences and the different zones give you different atmosphere. There are also some beautiful tradition architecture inside.

    If you are in okayama , a must see. They have a map with a treasure hunt like presentation for kids. Try the kibi mochi at the café by the river near the south entrance (the view of the castle is great too) and the peach flavoured soft ice cream in the park itself.
