Just left & was majorly disappointed, The gardens are very unkempt & resemble very little of a Japanese garden - needs a lot of work doing to it . There is no colour , only 2 plants flowering

I don't know if the garden looks better later in the year but it was not as interesting as I would have thought. We were through the whole thing in less than 30 minutes. I wouldn't go again.
