Description

An intimate Japanese-style garden which offers natural serenity and a place of contemplation to visitors. Sheltered by a lovely pine grove, the preserve includes a small pond and island, non-native and native flowers and plants, footpaths leading past a birch walk and stone garden, and a .5 mile trail winding toward Poucha Pond and the salt marsh. "Mytoi" has no translation in Japanese. Hugh Jones, who created Mytoi, spent so much time in his garden that he referred to it as his "toy,” spelled “M-Y-T-O-I”.

Directions: From ferry, take Chappaquiddick Road 2.5 mi. At sharp right curve, continue straight onto Dike Road (dirt road) and follow for 0.3 mi. to entrance and parking area on left. Roadside parking not permitted and is strictly enforced.
