Red bricks and planted colorful flowers unorderly are stylish, and the special atmosphere like a picture book can be enjoyed at the Garden of Gnome especially. By the way, each flowers purposely do not have name plates to value a natural atmosphere of the garden. Therefore the flowers are not in full bloom always, and the garden has a season with a lot of the flowers or a season with few flowers throughout the year. Some stone statues of the gnome and stone statues of bear and so on are set out hiddenly at the site, so finding those is fun.
