Only come here, if you have some time to kill and want to take in the surreal atmosphere: Hordes of Chinese tourists taking photographs in front of the replica of the Dresdner Zwinger, who then descend onto the various shops to buy diapers and baby formula. The exhibition of Imari ceramics is expensive at 500 Yen. Go to the Kyushu... More

You probably wouldn't expect to see this European palace in the middle of this small Japanese town, but do pay a visit if you're in the area because the grounds are beautiful and the porcelain sculptures and art pieces on site are unique.

Visited this park last spring. It looked really amazing I almost forgot I was in Japan. The only thing that made it 'Japanese' was the presence of cherry blossom trees. Didn't have much time to look around though, cos it suddenly rained and we were freezing. Hoping to visit again and take more photos.

I don't really know how anyone could complain about this place, the grounds are beautiful and it is free, We just visited here this month and quite enjoyed the place. Unlike all the other cheesy theme parks, this one was obviously well built. The castle or whatever it is looks to me like it was likely built by European craftsmen,... More

you need to see this place to believe it exist in the least expected little town. Sad that they have not maintained the gardens the way they should have. The attractions like the kiln and workshops are not open. We took the city bus to this location but would had to wait 2 hours to catch it on the way... More

We went to the park as part of our 4 day Kyushu hot springs tour with Trapic and as soon as we drove in I thought this is something different in Japan. The first thing that takes your eye as you enter is the German style Tudor buildings then next you see the huge German style Palace which is apparently... More

This park was originally designed as "German Theme Park" (Arita has a close relationship to Germany), with German-Style houses and German food stores. It went bancrupt pretty quickly though and was re-opened after a local Sake company bought the area. The building were kept the way they were, which is why you still have loads of parking spaces (appearently the... More
