Fodor's Review

In Uraku-en, a traditional garden attached to the grounds of the Meitetsu Inuyama Hotel, sits the Jo-an Teahouse. The teahouse was constructed in Kyoto in 1618 and moved to its present site in 1971. Admission to the garden is pricey, so it's worth paying an extra ¥500 to be served green tea in the traditional style. Uraku-en is less than ½ km (¼ mile) from Inuyama-jo, behind the Meitetsu Inuyama Hotel.
