In keeping with the traditions of Japanese gardens, visitors get a different perspective on the garden, depending on where one stands. Individual features of the garden are " revealed" as one makes the short journey around the perimeter of the pond, over a tiny footbridge, past a small waterfall, and up and around a " secret" pathway through a miniature wooded hill.
There's no best season to visit the Japanese Garden. During a hot New York City summer, it's refreshing to be near the pond's water. It is gorgeous in winter, with snow adorning the trees and structures. Autumn colors reflect in the pond.
