  • First, foreigners get a free pass. Second, not overly crowded. Peaceful, lovely rest houses oozed with ambience and charm. Not much colour yet, nor flowers but the mosses were in good form.  more »
  • This court is not very big, foreign people can be exempted from light, very japanese-style court, but really small, there is no chair to sit down to rest, so it's over.

  • Beautiful and serene gardens. We walked through the paths with our boys and they loved the walk. I usually will go to places that I think our 2- and 5-year olds will enjoy and this was a great choice. To our nice surprise, admission is free to foreigners, but the admission is very modest. You can leave your stroller at the entrance. This is a short visit, so plan accordingly.
  • You probably won’t find the Yoshiki-en on your tourist guide about Nara. I did not. I just happened to pass by its humble entrance when I was on the way to Nara’s other major tourist attractions. It was purely by divine providence that I ventured to go beyond that entrance; and it turned out that this little garden was the most memorable place that I had visited in Nara. The photos should speak for themselves. Let’s keep it a secret garden among the ones who will appreciate its beauty.
