  • Coming from the USA, this Japanese garden seemed very small and not too decorative. Best part was meeting some very friendly people n speaking with them at length. 
  • It's beautiful, but I don't know what it's worth this my review, as I was a few years ago. They said that hasn't changed at all. It really seems to be located at the corner of Japan. Spotless and well maintained. Careful surveillance. Who should be in s. Jose I highly recommend you go and visit. The time that I wrote, for the love of the truth is not that exactly, but I do not accept that two/tre years ago.

  • Must visit if you've never been, and it's a sweet slice of peaceful heaven. This place is often frequented by locals and used for weddings, photo shoots for birthdays or small get-togethers!
  • Great garden! Me and my wife found it even more spacious and nice than the one in San Francisco!!
  • Nice serene place great for an evening stroll. Paid parking lots on either side of the park, convenient but tad pricy if you plan of being there for a short time..
  • This is a very small park. Maintenance is very poor. Ponds have not been cleaned. Lot of funds growth in the pond. I think, they have fund problem. Not much of fish and duck in pond. Since it is Japanese park. I was under the impression that there would be lot of bonsai and special trees in the garden. I could not find any difference between other parks and this one. Not very good place. Not worth visiting this place.
  • Peaceful place to walk around and take pictures. Inspired by similar garden from Japan. Can walk entire park in short amount of time
