Garden in Inuyama close to Inuyama castle, opposite to Meitetsu hotel. This is a Japanese garden so not to expect much flowers. But focus is more on traditional landscapes with pebbles, bamboo trees. We bought the combo entry ticket for Inuyama castle and the garden...More

This small garden, though it has some nice nooks, is just not worth the admission price of ¥1000. It is basically a setting for a collection of tea houses which seem to have been valued for historical rather than aesthetic reasons. It cannot compare with...More

A 10 min walk from Inuyama Castle, this quaint Japanese garden with tea house is nice, quiet and peaceful. Although went in winter, the garden is very well kept and green. It isn't big, if you stroll slowly, you can probably finish walking in it...More

I have sometimes included castle visits with garden visits (ex. Okayama) and found this garden to be small, average and lacking any castle views. The addition of historical teahouses is interesting but on the whole, I wouldn't make a repeat visit here. The Joan teahouse...More

Don't come here if you are looking for a 'great' sth. It is a garden, lovely and quite quiet with a lot of beautiful corners. I came here off season which is why I couldn't enjoy a tea ceremony. Just a green tea and a...More
