Visited the garden twice and it is getting better every year as it matures. Lovely place for a stroll in autumn or spring. A little taste of Japanese nature..

Some trees and leaves could be easily seen outside in normal parks. The falls among the rocks was good. The best time is the cherry blossom in April which makes... More

In May we have visited this wonderful garden and we were very lucky because the magnificent blossoms were still there. It's really worth to visit it when you are in Hasselt. On certain days there are very nice activities, for example tea ceremony
