The place is amazing. It's like Tomoyo Daidouji's mansion in the Cardcaptor Sakura anime. Too bad we didn't get to explore the whole place as we were time-constrained. This place is good for dates. I give this place 5 stars.

Incredible beauty, even after the cherry blossoms start to fade. The tulips are simply gorgeous. Walk slowly, stop for tea, and enjoy the serenity that this beautiful park has to offer.

A big park, there's something for everyone. Lots of things to do like row boats, basketball court, football, golf and petanque. There's a barbeque area near the gingko avenue. There's something to enjoy in all 4 seasons. The waterpark is only open in summer though....More
