With a lush rolling landscape and fresh clear waters filled with colorful carp, Suizenji Jojuen Garden remains a welcoming sanctuary and authentic example of a traditional Japanese garden. Originally constructed in 1636, the gardens gradually grew to include the Izumi Shrine, a Noh theater, and Kokin-Denju-no-Ma teahouse. The landscaping is said to represent the 53 stations of "Tokaido," a well-known route between Edo and Kyoto. Stroll through delicate foliage, across hills and along the edge of ponds, observing the beauty of the miniature Mount Fuji, a landmark at the heart of the park.

Beautiful and well managed garden. Very clean and well paved footpath. The entrance fee is very reasonable. I went on a weekday with my family it was not too crowded with people. I would definitely come again.
It was v simple garden but v well maintained. There is a lot of fishes, birds and tortals. You can buy food for them and feed them. Also, outside the park there was a shop which was very nice. We bought some pots from there. Due to COVID and less number of tourists, may be you can ask for little discount :) Yes, at the part entry gate. When you buy ticket for park , you can show your one day tram pass and you will get some small discount :p
