Tokugawaen

Tokugawaen

Tokugawaen is a Japanese garden with walkways winding around a central pond symbolizing the ocean. The waterfall and steams utilize the differences in elevation to create an enjoyable, dynamic landscape. The park was once a residence of the old samurai manor can still be seen in the black gate at the en-trance. Mid- to late April is the best time to view peonies; June for Japanese iries, and late November for autumn leaves.
