Possibly the best garden i have visited in Japan. Stunning design, great lake, nice tough feeding the carp. Great walkway and great showcase of history and multiple miniture garden layouts. This is a must see and if you have time do the evening light show too.

Cherry trees line the walkways and I was lucky enought for them to be in full flower. The park was scrupiously clean thanks to all the volunteers who clean it daily. Beautiful shapes to trees and gardens in full bloom.

We had a great early evening visit in cherry blossom season. It definitely felt like a genuine japenese garden experience, relaxing and not over crowded like other attractions. Look out for the jumping fish, bats and turtles! Must see in Hiroshima!

Beautiful gardens where you can buy bags of food to feed the fish for 100yen. They are currently doing a night time cherry blossom tree light up event until 9pm which was stunning to see. However we didnt realise that you cannot bring your own food or drinks in as we planned a picnic! However there is a quaint cafe inside. Very picturesque to wander around for an hour or so.

We spent 2 hours here and arrived at 9am as the gates opened and got to take many photos without the crowds in them. This garden is amazing and the vistas spectacular! Could not stop taking photos. Lovely areas to sit and reflect and turtles and koi! I cannot tell you how many photos I took! We had a lovely cup of tea/cake afterwards and then went on to the Prefectural art museum - combine prices on enter for both attractions - well worth visiting! We actually caught a taxi here and then walked to the castle 15 mins via fantastic sushi/sashimi restaurant and then taxi home - beautiful day and park a highlight of our blossom tour so far.
