I've visited the Japanese garden in Daisen Park. You can have matcha green tea and Japanese cake at the tearoom in the garden. It was nice that there happened to be an event when I was there and I could hear a koto performance.

The night view from the observatory is very beautiful. It was impressive as there are not such high buildings in New Zealand. The view all the way to Namba is so romantic.
