We had a great time and found it very relaxing here. Watching the fish and listening to the gentle trickle of the water was calming We will definitely be going back time and time again

This is one of the most beautifuls gardens in Belgium. Visiting the several special events in the garden learns you more about the Japanese culture.

This garden is relatively young, by Japanese standards, but really nice. I guess it depends on what part of the year you visit. They also organize a lot of activities, exhibitions an so one. A nice day out.

Japanese Gardens is an unexpected oasis at a hidden spot of Europe. It offers a glimpse of traditional Japanese zen garden atmosphere, not so different from those in Kyoto. The architecture, scenery and the maturely settled well-planned garden is definitely worth seeing. It was surprising...More
