    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 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.
