  • Always fun place to explore and just to relax amongst well maintained garden. I like to seat out on the verandas and let my imagination transport me to Japan without the 18 hours of arduous flight to Asia. I wish noise screens are installed around the perimeter of the property to block distracting noise coming from passing cars. Tip: You must take your shoes off when walking throughout the interior of the house.
  • One of my favorite places to get away in the city. The garden is always beautiful but especially so during peak bloom for the cherry blossoms.
  • This place is amazing, peaceful and relaxing that will take you back to a time when life was much simpler and the Japanese embraced nature. Will be back soon!!
  • Greatly preserved Japanese construction. I would have given it a higher rating if the caretaker gave clear instructions. He encouraged us to touch and experience some items, then some others were off limits. Should have put a sign or something. Felt like we were being watched all the time.
  • Beautiful little Japanese house and garden. It's like stepping back in time. My family and I love visiting in the spring and feeding the giant koi in the pond. It's also very informative and interesting as well as beautiful.
