There never seem to be too many people here, so it's a great place to sit down and relax, walk through and take in the sights, or bring a date? They do not allow food in here, so strictly no picnics. It is about 80% under shade, so a good idea on a sunny day. Obviously Japanese flora would die... More

I first saw this garden years ago, now it's unrecognisable as the same place. Not having visited gardens in Japan, I don't have a lot of benchmarks, but this garden seems to embody the essence of Japanese gardens. Walking through it, the garden unfolds before you. An engaging, changing landscape of colours. textures and sounds. I could imagine spending quite... More

Lovely peaceful gardens. They're only small so it doesn't take very long to walk round but it was worth going for the atmosphere.

Such a lovely place for contemplation and relaxation. A great place to read a book or just sit and take in the view.
