  • My first time here, I attended the Moon Viewing Event. It was such an amazing experience to be there at night. The landscape was amazing, tranquil and beautiful. There was a good amount of people at the garden for the event, but not too overwhelming to crowd the entire area. I'm glad they made the event intimate.
  • Such an amazing place! We live in Japan, but when we come home our children love to come here with their grandparents, as it reminds them of Japan. Everything here is truly Japanese and nicely styled. Very good place to get to know Japanese garden culture if you don't have a chance to travel to the land of the rising sun in the near future.
