Like other parks for which you have to pay a fee, this garden is closed on Mondays. We returned the next day and the garden was as expected: elaborately landscaped, quite varied in themes and relaxing.

A must visit in Nagoya,
Beautiful gardens, with ponds, bridges, flowers, a bamboo grove, koi carp, tea house and restaurant. It’s very scenic and a lovely way to spend an hour/two hours. It is a little walk from the train station, and in the middle of a quiet housing area so make sure you get the directions before you go. But well worth a visit for a traditional Japanese garden.

We visited during strictly speaking the "off-season", when cherry blossoms were gone. Yet the Garden with its delightful design and moderate size makes it a very worthwhile place to visit for those who do not have too much time to spend but would like to have a real taste of an authentic Japanese garden.

Shirotori is THE best Japanese garden in Nagoya. Listed in "Hidden Gardens of Japan" THE photo essay and reference for finding unspoiled gardens in Japan, available on Amazon US and Amazon Japan for true fans of Japanese gardens without the tour bus mobs.

We were lucky to go there on the night that the autumn illumination event is free!
They have an art exhibition in the garden and we could see that they put a lot of effort in getting the lighting for the art exhibits correctly.
This is good because I have been to places that don't illuminate the exhibits well and it's hard to see them or take photos of them.
If I go to Nagoya again, would consider going there in the daytime and going to the tea place.
It wasn't open during the night event. It is situated in the middle of the pond in the garden and I think it would look really nice and peaceful to sit there, enjoying the view whilst having some Japanese sweet and tea.
