Miyazu Japanese Gardens - Review
Believe it or not, Nelson is the sister city to Miyazu, Japan. The purpose of sister cities is usually to establish and then develop commercial and cultural ties between the two. Here, this effort is no more beautifully apparent than in the exquisite Miyazu Japanese Gardens. It’s wonderful for a contemplative stroll, and immediately upn entering, the noise of the rest of the world dies away. The garden makes good use of shekkei, which is the art of using the scenery beyond the garden’s borders to enhance the impact and perceived size of the garden itself. Small ponds, little brides, cascades of water and cherry trees… this little slice of Japan couldn’t get better.

Miyazu Japanese Gardens, Nelson Reviews
Nice little Japanese garden. Stopped by on my was down form the center of NZ. Worth a stroll if on your way but not worth going out of your way for. Is well executed, to be fair maybe Japanese gardens are just not my thing. Might be much better if Cherry blossoms are on.
Weddings are awesome congratulations guys love you long time
Love the feel of this garden and a big thanks to the team that maintain these grounds. A real 'jewel in the crown ' for Nelson.
Step into serenity as you walk through the entrance of this beautiful Japanese Garden. Mind your step as you walk across the pond over stepping stones, watch the friendly ducks. Find your way through all the different paths. Great place for the kids to go rock hunting (like a treasure hunt, only with painted rocks) Bring a picnic, or read a book in the little hut. Every Spring (around the time the Cherry Blossoms bloom) there is a Cherry blossom Festival. There is toilet facilities here which bonus, and picnic tables. No bbqs. You could walk here from the city centre depending on your fitness and Founders Park is just up the road.
It's been neglected since we were last there a few years back. I was expecting the usual amazing pruning of shrubbery and beautiful well kept ponds. Really, it's a bit of a dump
