  • A great place to walk around with friends or even to walk your dog around the pond. There are also coy fish that you can see when overlooking on a bridge. When people visit during the warm months, I always take them here so they can see the beauty.
  • A nice and peaceful place to visit. The blooming season in Spring is the best time to visit and see the place in all its beauty. I would also recommend watching the tea ceremony that happens inside the house. The schedule of which is available on their website.
