Japanese Gardens are known across the world for their peaceful elegance and charm, and walking through one is like taking step into a landscape painting. There are many different kinds, including feudal strolling gardens, zen rock gardens, and moss gardens, each with features that set them apart.

Each year, the autumn leaves provide an especially lovely atmosphere that is not to be missed.
