Can you bring your own food in and eat lunch in the gardens?
February 18, Response from metalmomma Reviewed this property. I do not think they allow that, but not sure. There is a little spot with tables and chairs, so perhaps they do allow bringing in food, but did not see anyone eating anything there. No places to eat in the gardens No places to eat in the gardens themselves, as only a few concrete benches scattered throughout the gardens.
There are many restaurants nearby and a huge lawn area outside the gardens. Previous Next 1 2 3 4. TripAdvisor LLC is not responsible for content on external web sites. Sometimes in the raked gravel area you may have a boulder or mound protruding from the small stones or sand representing an island.
What you should know about graceful Chinese gardens
You may also see a variety of sizes of solid boulders set together that represent a waterfall. Chinese gardens are often aiming at preserving a natural appearance of the landscape. Nature at times can seem like it is taking over the garden or at least wilderness is dominating. The trimming and pruning of trees was kept to a minimum, if done at all, and left the natural form of the trees to be appreciated. In Japan however, a long tradition of heavily pruning and thinning of the branches and leaves has taken place.
Shrubs are perfectly sculpted into mounds that nestle together with boulders and trees. This gives the Japanese garden a very precise and highly maintained look to the garden. Both Chinese and Japanese gardens do highlight the fact that human beings and nature are coexisting. However, I see that Chinese gardens showcase this with the balance of ponds and natural landscapes with man-made structures like pavilions, and Japanese gardens lean more towards a scene of more naturally occurring elements that have been adjusted or manipulated by man here and there.
