It's really a nice park, quite spacious with beautiful scenery. There is also a unique tea house and since it's surrounded by nature it becomes the perfect place to take a stroll or just spend time reading your favorite book. The only thing is that you have to pay for the entrance fee.

Lovely park with a pond and lots of walking paths. Beautiful Autumn colours in late Noveber/early December. Costs 300 yen to enter. No picnic, no booze. Just walk and enjoy the big old trees. A real treasure of nature in the middle of the city.

This garden is a must see.
It is well planned and maintained. The variety of plants makes it a year round destination. Definitely worth spending an afternoon with locals to relax and enjoy the nature

It is nice to visit the park and forget for one moment that you are not in a big city. You can have the chance to visit with a guide for more details about this beautiful garden. My recommendation is to visit this place early morning to avoid the massive flow of visitors.

Wonderful to see Autumn leaves illuminated in the evening. Most of the park is illuminated in various ways. The entry price makes it a cheap night out, good for dates! The path at the beginning is quite dark and perhaps difficult for people unsteady on their feet.
