  • Enough cannot be said about this slice of Japan in South Florida. It truly is an incredible way to experience the culture. The gardens are always amazing, though peak season has the most color and bloom. The museum has great exhibits and the gift shop has so many cool items for sale!
  • Beautiful park and the membership seems a good deal if you live in the area. (Has tons of Pokestops, too!) The cafe is overpriced (but what do you expect?) but the sushi tasted fine.
  • This is a great little museum! They have different exhibits and events happening throughout the year. During one of my visits they had a bonsai tree exhibit outside in the garden, and during the other they had a traditional Japanese tattoo exhibit inside in the museum. Both were very lovely! There are also a gift shop and a cafe. And my favorite part - the expanse garden out back! It's beautiful and serene. You must see it for yourself.
  • A cool place to walk around on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Nice selection of wild life, cool museum, and a nice sushi cafe. I will return!
  • Very nice and well kept park, following the trail you'll walk though several Japanese gardens and enjoy different relaxing views. To visit the park takes one or two hours. Ticket is 15 $ , absolutely worth the price! Another big plus is the restaurant in the park, prices are on the average but food is excellent!
