Absolutely stunning gardens. Beautiful, well-maintained landscaping with cheerful staff and accessibility for english speakers. ¥300 adult entrance at time of my visit. AWESOME little tea house near the lake offers snacks and drinks... in both Japanese and English. All in all, if I lived within the area, I'd be in this park all year round (annual passes offered for sale, as well).

Really loved this park in the middle of residential area. 300 yen to get in for adults. They had discounts for seniors and kids. They had annual pass for 1200 yen, which is a good deal if you live close by. I wish the cafe inside was less crowded and relaxing. But all the nature was so beautiful.

Loved this garden to bits. Beautiful layout. Lake surrounding lovely trees. The autumn colours are mesmerising. The little tea house was a warm welcome to a cool and wet day. Highly recommended

This garden is not so big but has a very nice scenery. It has path that can make you feel like it is not in the middle of city.

Very beautiful garden arranged around a pretty big pond which I would call a lake already. In short walking distance of the JR circle line. Entrance is ¥400 and there are several tea houses and street food stalls available which I haven't seen in any other garden. Be prepared for mud after a rainy day. I saw many women in heels or white sneakers ... Not appropriate ;). You'll get some red maple trees but it is not an autumn garden in particular.
