What people are saying:

A Japanese-style park hidden in the desert mountains-Asticou Azalea Garden. During the holiday, I came to Tohoku Port with my family and played in the desert mountains. Originally Asticou Azalea Garden was built in 1956, the garden is an elegant natural fantasy world, full of wonderful visual enjoyment. When the garden was built in the early days, people came up with a design plan that combined all aspects of the Japanese strolling garden with the unique coastal environment, rocks, water and vegetation of Maine. When you visit, you will know that the garden is not about 2-3 acres. It is surrounded by Japanese-style bamboo and cedar fences. It creates a quiet and contemplative place beside the busy road. There are several water features in the garden in secluded corners, as well as many beautiful sculptures and Japanese stone lanterns. The design is just right, the water, plants and rocks will remind you of a Japanese garden without koi! About a 20-minute walk, you will find a special sand garden and a pond surrounded by native trees and rocks. Through the winding roads, we will see a large number of carefully trimmed rows of small flowers, as well as butterflies and bees surrounding it. This is definitely a lovely attraction for nature lovers and meditators. Reminder 1. Rhododendrons are more suitable for playing during their flowering period. 2. This garden is owned and maintained by the Volunteer Committee of the Desert Mountain Land and Garden Reserve and can be donated $5.
