  • Not particularly amazing for the 510 yen entry fee. Just a nice house and garden, which you can give a miss if you're tight on time and have seen other Japanese gardens. Thought the history of the place might've been interesting, but guess not. Also saw a number of stinkbugs on the carpets throughout the villa, so look where you step! It was fall when I visited.
  • A lovely palace. I have spent nearly 2 hours inside this place and still wanted more time. The garden outside was quiet and a joy to walk. Inside a great example of Japanese x European architecture.
