Nice little half-mile hike around the gardens. Quiet (we were the only ones there). I wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if you are on the island it is well worth stopping.

Beautifully maintained 3 acre garden, mainly managed by two ladies. While it may not be "Japanese" enough for some, we certainly felt the authenticity of the Zen spirit of the garden and that offered more than enough.

You can never express how quiet and special Mytoi is - no matter what the season it is so beautiful, a great place to walk and rest, we often bike over here and make sure to stop

We enjoyed slowing down a bit to stroll through the Mytoi gardens. The shade was especially appreciated. The natural gardens and the overall atmosphere are worth a stop. You can spend as much or as little time there as you like.

Mytoi is a very peaceful Japanese garden on Chappaquiddick. The garden is free and there are portajohns there. I took the ferry across with my car and drove down the road to garden, where there's free parking. (If you keep driving along this road you'll...More

Just visited their website and saw a dog symbol with a slash through it, so no pets - sorry!

You can rent a bike and take the Chappell ferry over and ride bike to Mytoi. You could walk but it may be a mile or so from ferry dock
