We enjoyed walking around the garden very much. The rock maze was fun and the view from zigzag bridge was nice I'm not a music person, so, i don't quite get the piano museums. I recommend spending about 2 - 3 hours there.

There's a Piano Museum inside the garden for those interested in old vintage pianos. The garden itself is small and pretty, especially since it's near the sea with a view of a nearby beach, but there are a lot of people walking alongside you as...More
