A 60,000㎡ Japanese garden is located in part of the Showa Kinen Park, which was built on the former site of an American military base to commemorate 50 years reign of Emperor Showa (Hirohito). The change of the four seasons is beautiful, and the red and yellow leaves of autumn are especially wonderful. An artificial mountain is built inside the garden. Water gushing forth from the mountain forms a stream that empties into a pond. Traditional Japanese garden technology is used up to the finest details. It features natural, bright and freely scenery. There is also a bonsai garden adjacent to the park.
