Happoen Garden features all of the traditional elements of a Japanese garden, with koi-filled ponds, a traditional tea house and is renowned for its harmony with nature, featuring cherry trees, bonsai, momiji and other seasonal trees and plants. There are over 2000 marriages yearly (apparently) so it is a good spot to see a procession!
