They decorate it with Christmas decoration as Xmas is coming, i didn't go into the museum as I running out of time. But the garden outside of it was beautiful and clean, It makes me feel so relax to just sit down and enjoy the weather.

A traditional Japanese style garden. Entrance fee ¥300. A compact garden with tea ceremony rooms over looking the lake. The garden is designed with lakes and streams, waterfalls and a small mount representing Mt.Ontake.
At week end the tea ceremony house may not be opened to the public when tea ceremony is in progress, many local women in their beautiful kimonos can be seen at such occasions.

These gardens are a welcome and relaxing break from the city with plenty of seating. Take a stroll around the many lakes and enjoy the peace and tranquility. There is a small entrance fee but it is worth paying. Take a snack and drink with you, so you can spend a few hours contemplating the rest of your visit to Nagoya. There is at least one tearoom but there is a fee to use it and I think it needs to be booked. On our visit we didn't see the tearoom being used.

Access is about a 20 minute walk from Jingumae JR station or Jingunishi subway station.

As a public facility, this traditional Japanese garden offers something for everyone. During this Christmas season there are paper handicraft illumations and we attended a heart-warming jenbe concert by an African drummer talking about the significance of Christmas. I am looking forward to the nest visit, in a warmer season.

The Shirotori Garden is a lovely garden/oasis in the city. Walking around inside it's sometimes hard to believe it is in the city. There's a koi pond in the middle and a number of meandering paths that go around it. In the middle of the park is a tea house and near the back (south) is a nice waterfall.

Getting there is a bit difficult. The closest subway stops are Hibino on the Meiko Line, and Jingunishi on the Meijo Line - the park being about 15 ~ 20 minutes walk from either one. The bus stops closer to the park: from Kanayama station take the bus headed for "Noseki Eki・Minato Kuyakusho" and get off at "Shirotoribashishita" and walk 3 minutes. Or, from Jinguhigashimon take the bus for "Gonno・Nakagawa Shakomae" and get off at "Shirotoribashishita" and walk for 3 minutes.

The park has bathrooms, but no food for purchase. Most of the paths are gravel and some are twisty/turny and narrow making wheelchair access difficult (but not impossible.) The fee is ¥300 for adults (free for junior high school students and younger), and ¥100 for seniors over 65 (with identification.)

If you enjoy long walks, Kanayama is not that far away, and Atsuta Shrine is also quite close.
