Happoen Garden features all of the traditional elements of a Japanese garden—like koi-filled ponds and a traditional tea house. It is renowned for its harmony with nature, featuring cherry trees, bonsai, maple trees and other seasonal trees and plants. There are over 2,000 marriages yearly (apparently) so it is a good spot to see a traditional wedding procession!

There are also a few fancy restaurants within the grounds that are generally open to the public.
