A nice stroll in the well-maintained garden. The plants are perfectly manicured and the weather was perfect in March. As it was Sakura season, we saw many Japanese families having picnic in the park under the trees. Also spotted quite a number of people in...More

Suisenji Park is a miniature Mount Fuji. The Koi fish in the streams are beautiful, there are some souvenir shops there for tourists. While in Kumamoto this park and Kumamoto castle are a must see.

Perfect place to walk around and enjoy peace and quiet. Easy tram ride from the centre takes you close to the gates.

Beautiful garden with lots of cherry blossoms and a large pond. I spent an hour here but wished I stayed a little longer. Very serene and gorgeous. Highly recommended.

May want to beg to differ when it is mentioned as one of the top three Japanese gardens, because it is pretty small. Otherwise, the park is well maintained and beautiful, with people having picnics under the sakura trees. Honestly, i won't travel all the...More

As I love Japanese gardens I of course went to Suizenji Jojuen Garden too when I visited Kumamoto. It's a nice design, it give a good background for pictures. I have spent several hours there, walking, taking pictures, reading in the shade. Definitely not a...More
