Oyakuen Garden was a small but immaculately kept garden with a meditation pavilion as its center piece. It only took about 20 minutes to walk around but it was a nice peaceful walk having the place to myself.

Take your time, walk around the lake more than once and dream medidating in the pavilion in the center of the lake. This is a perfect addition to visiting the Tsuruga castle.

It was a sunny day, so perfect to wander around the small flower/herb garden. We ordered matcha and sat on the tatami looking out over the pond - the only two people there. It was idyllic.

Or, the Royal Garden of the Aizu Matsudaira. This traditional garden is also a botanical herb garden where medicinal herbs have been cultivated since the latter half of the 17th century.

An attractive, small provincial garden with an unusual herb section to the garden. Despite showing some signs of lack of maintenance this is a pleasant way to spend an hour or so while in Aziu.

Very well maintained garden with a great diversity of plants. Everywhere one sees the pictures, very worth the ride.

Oyakuen is a combination of traditional Japanese garden and a medicinal herb garden. It is on the Tourist Loop Bus route and worth a very tranquil visit.

A beautiful garden with lovely views across the water. Very well maintained and despite the surrounding buildings has a sense of peace.
