Tokugawa Art Museum and Tokugawa-en, Nagoya: 6 reviews and 17 photos
Huge success of Shiratori Garden in 1989 led to a number of Japanese garden reconstructions throughout Japan. Tokugawaen Garden built in 2004 is one of such notable examples slightly based on the gardens of Owari Tokugawa family residence either in Nagoya or Tokyo. The garden features two great waterfalls, Ozone No Taki and Ryumon No Taki. It also has reduced version of Baidi (Bai Causeway) at the Xi Hu(West Lake) of Hangzhou, China. Baidi is one of the popular motifs in Japanese gardens. I like the landscape of the bridge over the ravine, and a traditional styled boatshed. Compound ticket for Tokugawa Art Museum and Hosa Bunko Library is also available(1,500 yen).
