[Testimonial] I am a Japanese Gardens’ enthusiast and.. [by C.M.]
I am a Japanese Gardens’ enthusiast and have been looking for a professional and exhaustive guided tour of Japanese Gardens since I moved to Tokyo 5 years ago and I finally found it!
Anika from Real Japanese Gardens selected for me the Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens, a masterpiece of Japanese Edo gardening in the heart of Tokyo.
She is highly knowledgeable and took the time to customize her tour to my needs. Anika explained to me in details the origin and evolution of Japanese gardens, the meaning, and symbolism of the different elements, the legends, and the religious background, the fascinating story of this historical garden and the family of the lords who built it.
She answered all my questions and made also technical issues accessible to a non-technical person like me. I finally understood the meaning and scope of the gardens I had been admiring in Tokyo and Kyoto during the last 5 years!
I can only highly recommend Real Japanese Gardens tours to lovers of the Japanese rich culture, being them resident like me or tourist.
