photo japanese garden

Rare in a southern city such as Toulouse, this garden offers botanical varieties of the Far East. Designed by the research department of gardens and green spaces as a place of meditation, there is a mineral garden, a red wooden bridge connecting a typical Japanese island which is allegorical paradise. It builds on the established gardens in Kyoto between the fourteenth century and sixteenth century, corresponding to times of Muromachi and Edo. It is isolated from the rest of the park through curtains of greenery and a hill offering some privacy.

The garden is composed of : a dry garden : with the island Crane, with the Turtle Island, with the 9 rocks, a lake a tea pavilion a garden planted with : a dry waterfall, with a lantern, stones of three saints, with the red bridge, with Mount Fuji, with the island of Paradise

    Lovely photographs of the Japanese garden. There is a Japanese garden in Monte Carlo - always such a peaceful place to visit, as is this one.

    This garden is really beautifull .Spring is the better season to visit it because all trees are in flowers. I'm often present in this city and i love it very much.
