This is a nice relaxing part of a great botanical garden. It's great for a stroll or a quiet sit. There is attention to detail and a nice visitor area with info on Japan.

We had a nice 20 minute stroll through this very pretty garden. It is a very calming oasis. If your life needs more calming, you could easily spend more time. It is right by the Olympic Stadium and the Insectarium.

What a beautiful garden. So beautiful and peaceful. Great variety with the ponds and the running water and bonsai tree display. A little expensive to get in but thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent there.

At the entry point, there is a touching memorial to Hiroshima bombing victims and survivors. It’s a timely reminder of our recent past. The ornate gardens meander in a most relaxing and visually pleasing way. Well worth a half to full hour, including just sitting...More

I am sorry, I am not remember exactly but it was around $20.00 CADs, it is not expensive for all you can get there, it is really cheap. Enjoy it, do not doubt to visit it.
