This place I liked a lot. Bonsai is hard to grow, they showed more than 200 of them. Shady, small paths and a lot to see. Really cool. If you are green fingered, this place is a do-not-dare-to-miss for you.

Lovely garden with Bonsai plants, little pins and many other midget trees who has lot of years, and don't grow, presented in a Zen ambiance, sometimes quite or with music accordingly.
