The gardens are especially known for their plum blossoms in March.
It's free to get in, there's a cafe/restaurant, a shop selling often organic vegetables as well as plants and health foods, glass houses, a bamboo forest, streams and even a model farm with battery chickens, pigs, sheep, goats and cows.
The nearest station is Hirabari on the Tsurumai Line - head east from the station on the road to Toyota. The Nagoya Agricultural Center is about 15 minutes on foot on your right.
