    #TIL: asseverates. I was going to edit that as a typo until I looked it up.

    @FreeMan You and me both. And my girl-friend (and she is a professional translator) had never heard of it either. It's been years since either of us encountered an English word we didn't already know.

    It's like a mashup of assert and aver. Oct 28, 2019 at 15:57

This appears to be the Mizunomori Water Botanical Garden. A very similar photo to yours can be seen here. It is apparently located at 1091 Oroshimo-cho, Kusatsu City, Shiga.

(Note that your Google Maps link is not pointing to the city of Kusatsu in Shiga Prefecture, but to a different and much smaller town named Kusatsu in Gunma Prefecture.)

  • Thanks! have you been there? if not, how did you figure out the location?

    @MatthewLau: I have not been there. I just did a bunch of searches for "Kusatsu gardens" and things like that. Oct 29, 2019 at 0:51
