What people are saying:

Xiangyuan is a Japanese-style garden, full of Zen, changing sceneries, with the elegance of a Jiangnan garden. The Chrysanthemum Exhibition is held from the end of October to November every year. This time I came to Kobe. It happened to be during the exhibition. The ticket was 300 yen. I was walking and shooting. I stayed inside for 2 hours. There is an old white pine (a Chinese tree species) in the garden, which was very kind to see. There is a boathouse called a "boathouse shape" on the small bridge and flowing water, which also shows the elegance of the garden. The gradual change of the red and yellow maple leaves of the five-cornered maple gives a beautiful layering. There is a large variety of chrysanthemums, as big as a baby's head. I have never seen such a large chrysanthemum in China. It is amazing. There is also a garden house in the garden, which was the residence of the mayor. You need to change slippers to enter the room.

    Stunning garden

    This garden is a beautiful place, you could spend quite some time just sitting and relaxing among the gardens or near the water. Fabulous.
