This Japanese garden is an extremely nice place to go. Cheap entrance. I had a very nice time here, walking through the garden, enjoying the nature surrounding us, and watching the beautiful gold and orange Japanese carps. The place is made of a lot of different gardens connected to each other with different nature themes. The gardens are very well taken care of. This is definitely a place to go as this is part of the Japanese culture.
One of the best gardens we actually saw in Japan, where they know what they are doing in general. They are several, separated gardens with different themes and atmospheres. Really enjoyable
So beautiful. We had an absolutely magical time here wandering through the nine different gardens. The on-site restaurant was also delicious. It’s a must try if you’re in the area for the Himeji Castle.
Lovely garden that's a bit bigger than expected. Worth the ¥300 let alone the ¥40 on top of the castle entry fee.
Even if I was to early for the colors of falls , it was still a very nice experience to visit this garden.
