  • It is a secluded garden was created by the Japanese. Oriental and tranquil atmosphere is really great. Take a break, even the locals occasionally looked down. To be able to walk along the water and walk well.

  • Great works of artistic scenery, creating a relaxing and calming atmosphere, with every carefully placed rock, tree, bridge... just an amazing place to visit. Just one thing, I do not really recommend coming during the winter, but in the spring, when the flowers blossom, this is your go - to place if you can't find things to do.
  • Went there on the 2nd of july, it was closed due to flood reparations, didn't said date when they are opening again.
  • CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR FLOOD CLEANUP! No signs posted, found out after paid to park. Very disappointed
  • Went here on a rainy day and had the whole place to myself. Folks really don't know what they're missing. It's so peaceful and beautiful.
  • So lush and peaceful with so many paths to take and the happiest Koi fish I've ever had the pleasure of feeding.
