Great place for friends, families, and those friends you want to make family (wink wink). Beautiful display of lights and with several great places for photo opportunities! They have these spots that are created just for couple photos that are cute and amazing! Parking lot is also very large and not bad selection of food! We spent about two hours there and saw everything in a little over an hour.

This is my second time here. The place is amazing. You can see a lot of different and beautiful flowers. Nice place to relax and enjoy the lovely scenery. You can take a pictures a lot, that's for sure😁. In every season you will appreciate the gorgeous view of flowers.
If ever you want to come here be sure to bring a phone that's have a huge memory or a camera.
In this time of pandemic the management kept extra precautions and protocols for the safety of their customers.

Definitely a must visit in the winter time if in the area. Great for dates or even a trip with a group of friends.
First off, the entry fee was super cheap given how huge the park is. We got there thinking we'd be done in an hour or two to find out that we didn't have enough time to see the entire park.
Second, the lights are stunning. I thought it was really clever how they replaced the original wisterias with light versions and loved how they moved the lights to different sequences in a TeamLab like fashion. There were so many lights that were all different throughout the park that made us want to stay and stare for a long time because of how dynamic they were.
Finally, the food was good! They had many options and had a beef stew that they call their specialty.
Will definitely come by every time I'm in this area now

I don’t think anyone will ever have complaints about this place. Totally worth the visit. It’s beautiful. At night specially by the water ponds. The lighting and the environment is eye catching. Though during winter season it tends to get super cold around the nights. There are many food shops inside, make sure to take cash. Only one of them accepts credit card.

Beautiful garden at night. I came here early May to see the Wisteria light up. The reflection off the pond water makes for excellent photos. I've never been here during the day, but the amount of car parking they have around the site makes me feel that this place must be rammed pack full off people during sun up hours. I came just 1 hour 30 mins before close and all the crowds had died down and I could park right next to the front entrance.
