  • I visited on a rainy day, but the garden full of moss was very wonderful. I was bathed in a lot of negative ions. I think that it is a place with few people, too.

  • It was by the time of the walk in Gora. The museum itself is an exhibition of Imari and The Ring, but there is nothing special. The garden is easy to walk and maintained, so you can go around the moss garden. There is a set of tea confectionery, and matcha can be tasted at a good discount, so please come by all means. I was able to relax while looking at the garden in the room where the air conditioning worked well even in the hot summer.

  • Heavenly, Japanese-style garden and a beautiful collection of old ceramics dating back to the Jomon Period.
  • Honestly the garden is the best bit providing it's not winter
