This venerable garden in Yokohama has a huge pond and a lot of interesting historical buildings, including a spectacular pagoda. It makes for a fine, meandering walk in any season, with interesting views, bridges and cultural tidbits around every corner. And if we’re lucky, we might spot one of the the resident kingfishers!
