Let me propose the best way here.

In Spring for cherry blossom season, the best way is go and buy tickets in the morning, and wait till it's getting dark, by having lunch and dinner around. Then get into the garden. Otherwise you'll spend half an hour for just buying a ticket.
Inside the garden, not that much cherry blossom than I expected. But it's well treated and organized.

Truly gorgeous park with lovely places to rest

Small but very pretty park with nice walking ways along the small pond. Alongside the walkway are smaller routes with a couple of benches to take a quick nap or just to relax a little.

While most people visited here during the Sakura season, it’s just as beautiful during the summer with globes of clustered hydrangeas. With less visitors, it’s easier to appreciate the well-designed traditional garden. Bring a book that you have been meaning to read and you can spend the whole afternoon here.

It costs 300 yen to enter this garden but it is well worth it. We arrived in the evening about an hour before sunset. Got to see it in day light and then stayed till after sunset and got to see it lit up with lights. Absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. Hours say it closes at 5pm but was there well past that and it seemed to get a little busier at night.
