  • It looks really pretty but the price for my wife and I would have been $20. If it was $5 each we could have justified it. Totally crazy price. What a shame. We just looked in from a balcony nearby. They really need to have a reasonable price for this type of attraction. UPDATE: We learned that you can get a daily museum pass and that pass includes this garden. If you are doing the museums then this would be a good deal. I am raising the stars by one since this might work to make the price reasonable.
  • Very pretty! A bit expensive for entrance w a family but we'll worth it if you have the time to really enjoy it.
  • We came here for the Cherry Blossom Festival and enjoyed every minute of it. Peaceful landscape and a lot of wonderful cherry trees in full blossom. However, I am not sure if it's worth it's money on a regular day, the garden is not that big...
  • Lots of beautiful flowers and ponds. The traditional Japanese architecture is really cool to experience in the building here
  • Amazing oasis & hidden gem, truly comes to life during the bloom of cherry blossom trees!
