Designed by a famous British gardener, it is former farmland, now laid out in a series of theme gardens with many cute little buildings and statues hidden among the trees and flowers.
I really enjoyed it - and particularly this fantastic big tomato tree that is all ONE plant growing in water.
The gardens are about 10 years old, so still feel a little new - but it is beautiful and the famous animals (llamas and alpacas etc) are cute.
But - a lot of the garden is not really "English" garden - more like a formal French style of garden.
In Japan people say "English garden" and they really mean a "Cottage Garden", all the flowers mixed together around a lawn. The French, more formal style has a square, with paths leading in and out of it, and plants laid out in a plan on color or type.
If you go to the big houses of France (and England) you see the more formal gardens, and Ecorinmura and Yuni gardens in Hokkaido are more like these.
But...beautiful. And I didn't have to do any weeding so VERY happy.
