The Japanese garden is not as beautiful as it used to be. Most people seem to be disappointed when they go to it because they are expecting an amazing beautiful atmosphere and Japanese architectures and things.
However, this is just your typical park. There is a pond or a lake in the middle of the garden but it is dirty and looks like a pond. The Japanese garden must be seen in the right time of year if you are looking for total greenery and a beautiful atmosphere. It is a nice place to go and hang out for the day but there is not a lot to do. This is not a place to take your children for the day.
