Such a shame that on our last visit the ibis’ have stripped bare the tree in the lake (and their droppings were on the seats/bridge rails), the pine trees and shrubs were not trimmed (karikomi) – it didn’t look well maintained and the turtles were thickly covered with moss (?). While “feeding ducks” can be fun, it is not good for them – there should be a sign indicating same. Please get volunteers (USQ?) to keep this beautiful garden in the tradition it was meant.

Beautiful gardens that was an easy walk for most people. The best places were a little harder for anyone with mobility issues but still well worth your time.
