Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden. Cherry on the cake of the area adjacent to the Centennial Hall. Founded on the initiative of the count Fritz von Hochberg, a diplomat and orientalist, with the participation of the Japanese gardener Mankichi Arai, on the occasion of the Centennial Exhibition in 1913. It combines the features of several types of gardens: public, water, tea ceremony and pebble beach. In terms of its composition, it is thought-out and consistent like a samurai path. From the main gate of Sukiya-mon over the bridge with the Yumedono Bashi observation pavilion we reach the crossroads. This is the moment of choice. Along the shore of the pond there is a route from the gentle female cascade of Onna-daki to the rapid male cascade of Otoko-daki. On the second trail, crossing the arched bridge Taiko Bashi, we reach the Azumaya tea pavilion.

Unusual vegetation, surprising arrangements and symbolic spatial compositions make the Garden a real treasure for botany and ichthyology enthusiasts to this day (it is because of the orange koi carps that inhabit the ponds, warming their large trunks in the afternoon sunshine). Apart from the Botanical Garden, it is undoubtedly an obligatory point for every sympathizer of well thought-out garden arrangements.
