  • Very beautiful nature scenes. Deep slopes variety of trees and plants. The Japanese restaurant was closed as well as tea house and spa were closed exaggerated. Not much of Japanese impression is there unlike the French village. Transportation from the place is difficult and very expensive. Reserve a shuttle from the resort a day before. Cannot call Uber to here. Taxi out can be Rm 200-300. Or arrange with a driver to pick you up.
  • I'm quite liking the environment there. Nature makes me feel relaxed and comfortable... But, It's made me feel tired... When we arrive at the parking area, we need to climb on the stairs and slope for a few minutes to the Japanese village sign board... Also, we need to pay RM 20 to rent a yukata (I don't think it's a kimono...) Actually, It's nothing much to see here, except nature, a small waterfall, river, and the Japanese traditional house... But, It's a beautiful place to take photograph.
  • This is an awesome place for people who like Japan and its culture. You can try the traditional Japanese outfit for RM20. People who are not interested in Japan culture will find it boring and not worthy. There is a souveneir shop and a spa. It is hard to get up there (you need to climb up 88 steps and walk a sharp decline).
  • If there was not as much people, maybe then you can feel and appreciate the simplicity and tranquility of this japanese village themed area. I won't call it a village. There is only 1 shack and 1 house there, with a designed pond and river flowing in between. The house situated on elevated ground. Wait, there was a massage place, and another japanese styled house. But, they were closed.
  • Beware there is a 88-step staircase going up to the garden. There is a sign to warn travellers with respiratory problems. The garden is quite unique and there are many koi fish in the natural waterfall pond.
