We were staying at the Caliraya Lake Resort and went for a walk where we came across the entrance to the gardens. They cover a large area and have a number of paths taking you through. July is probably not the best time to experience...More

Silent and peaceful. Thats what you get when walking/hiking in Japanese Garden. You get closer to nature and enjoy listening the birds chirping :) Daytrip is advised as the garden has few lights. Wear sneakers as well. :)

On how to get there, take the Kalayaan-Lumban-Cavinti Road passing along Lake Caliraya leading to the site. This is the shorter and more direct route. Do not go to Cavinti town as this will take longer by almost an hour. The Japanese Garden was built...More
