What people are saying:

Haogu Garden is composed of nine independent and carefully restored samurai residences and their courtyards. The Edo-style courtyard has waterfalls, carp ponds, pavilions, rockeries, and shrubs. The scenery is the best in spring and autumn. Many Japanese historical dramas were filmed at this time, and there was also a quiet tea room. It was the autumn leaf season, where women in costumes gathered for tea.

    Very nice garden

    You can buy a combined ticket along with Himeji Castle's. It's worth. The garden is very close to the castle and the work on the creeks and vegetation is impressive. In addition to walk around, there ...

    Beautiful, serene gardens

    It would be a sin not to visit these gardens while you visit Himeji Castle. Multiple themes, ponds, sculptures and a broad spectrum of Japanese plants. We visited when the plums were almost finished b...
