A Japanese Garden with Rave Reviews from America

The Yōkōkan Garden features a large pond in its center with a number of small buildings that appear to float on the surface of the water. This is a great place to slow down and relax. Here you can experience a Japanese tea ceremony that's accessible to not only first-timers but kids alike. There are flowers and wall scrolls to enjoy, along with traditional Japanese sweets. It's a wonderful chance to experience Japanese culture. Well-regarded for its welcoming atmosphere, Yōkōkan Garden has been internationally recognized for its experience and is popular with foreign tourists.
