Absolutely beautiful and extremely relaxing. Please take advantage of the guides! We had an amazing woman walk us through the house and describe the details of how it was built, the purpose of the rooms, and what life was like at the time of these buildings. It was so interesting! She even shared details about what a tea ceremony was like at the time. I cannot wait to go back!

I mean, it was interesting but not worth paying full price. You can complete walking the grounds in 10 min. The only thing that made it worth it for us was getting to feed the koi fish. They were best part of the visit.
