  • It was a nice walk with some cool things to see. I am not upset with the $3 entry fee at all. Remember to grab a map before you start from the payment window.
  • Nice tranquil garden! We visted Mizumoto whilst traveling through the town. Sensible entry price ($3) The garden was very well kept as were the surrounding grounds.
  • This place is so beautiful! its worth every penny and doesn't cost that much.
  • Not sure if it's worth the entrance fee, but there are a few very nice design moments at the northeast corner.
  • A beautiful and tranquil place. $3 admission fee which was well worth it. I felt like I got a $25 value for just looking around. Got lots of great photos and had a good time enjoying the scenery.
