Train it: JR Kumamoto  → Shin-Suizenji (JR Hohi line), then walk for 10min

 Before entering the Garden, we had lunch...

Renkon, ¥700
A specialty for this area. I didn't like this at all, it's like loaded with wasabi! So unleash finished em all.

Tamago udon, ¥600

Unagi set, ¥1700

Walking in this garden was so zen! I felt like rolling down those perfectly manicured grass.
