The time taken to build something so beautiful and peaceful is inspiring. Sadly the blossom was just starting can only imagine it in full bloom. Decades of skilled running really paid off.

Not a big game garden, but is beautiful. Very serene and peaceful place. Sip some green tea and eat some mochi in the atami syle tea house, you can do some meditation there.

The gardens were lovely. Lucky there were cherry blossoms blooming and not too many people. A lovely place to spend an hour or two. Serene and stunning.
