  • A great place to visit and worth your time to walk and enjoy the environment. I recommend visiting the small hut in the pond for a tea ceremony, for only 800 yen its well worth the experience. Hand made cups. Very relaxing. Limited English but the hostess is friendly and will try her best. Some great photos can also be taken of the area. Lots of fish as well.
  • It's a nice place for a walk. Not much going on though... If you just want a nice park to stroll through, it's good. But the actual amount of historical information provided is quite slim. Maybe that's by design because they don't want to put signs all over the place?
