A HIDDEN PRIVATE GARDEN
A visit to KEIKAEN GARDEN in the town of Takebe, Okayama will heighten your aroma senses. This garden, overlooking rice fields & farmland, is filled with flora & fauna & birds. There are greenhouses with cactus, goldfish ponds, aloe, & plants that I don`t know the names of (ha ha!)), parrots, pheasants, & other birds.
Located here is also a teahouse & of course a souvenir shop selling Japanese sweets.
Located about 8 min. by car from Takebe International Villa, near the train tracks.
300yen/adult admission fee. Open 9am-6pm, closed Dec 29-Jan 2.
