Isuien Garden - Review
Isuien Garden is a beautiful, traditional Japanese-style garden. The name Isuien means ‘garden founded on water’. This name is based on the fact that its ponds are watered by the nearby Yoshikigawa River. Isuien is divided into two parts, a front garden and a rear garden, with a number of tea houses scattered throughout its premises. The garden is a perfect blend of nature and manmade gardening. Inside the garden is a museum displaying pottery, seals, mirrors and other artefacts from ancient China and Korea.

Isuien Garden, Nara Reviews
A truly beautiful place. Autumn colors were breathtaking. A nice english-speaking lady gave us a tour, it was very interesting.
A small but exquisite Japanese garden in Nara. Free entry to non Japanese
Very very nice. It's called 依水院 meaning "next to the water" which is a very poetic and suitable name for this garden. Love the scene and its reflection in the pond. A must go garden if it's a sunny autumn day. Good to take picture in the morning due to the sunlight direction. Note: visit at 9-10 to avoid the crowd. Visit garden first before the museum to avoid the crowd.
Admission ticket includes an entry to the pottery museum beside which i feel can forgo if you're on a tight schedule. Don't miss out on this Teletubbies land inside Isuien garden! It's amazing! I've been there in all seasons except winter and i have to say it's absolutely stunning in Autumn!
The free garden next-door is just as exquisite. Would avoid. (900 yen is just too much for what this is)
