The gardens consist of the Upper House, Lower House and four gardens, the Hill and Pond Garden, the Tea Garden, the Zen Garden and Kizuna-En which is the bamboo garden.
It was very peaceful and serene walking around the gardens. We spotted a deer in the bamboo garden munching away on the grass and small bamboo stems. There was a TV crew filming a commercial in the Pond garden near the bridge.
The cost was only $4 for each of us and well worth the price of admission. Dodie gave us a great history tour of the gardens and was very enthusiastic about her job.
