Superb hidden gem. A traditional Japanese garden and tea house with plantings along the trails up the surrounding hills and down to the koi pond. If you are lucky a tea ceremony or traditional Japanese music will be in process.

The lush greenery of the garden ranging up the surprisingly hilly terrain is a perfect setting for this oriental garden. The pavilion and koi ponds blend with the gardens to make you breath deeper and let your spirit relax.
