Find peace in the Kyoto Garden | Zenitude @ Kyoto Garden

Un jardin japonais, au detour d’une promenade dans Holland Park, invite a s’asseoir.

Offert en 1991 par la chambre de commerce de Kyoto a l’occasion du festival japonais, il se veut traditionnel. La taille des arbres respecte la forme naturelle des branches. La cascade en trois etapes condense en miniature montagnes et gorges tandis que l’etang represente le calme de l’ocean.

Hypnotise par le reflet des nuages dans l’eau sombre, seules les taches de couleur des carpes japonaises viendra troubler vos pensees…

I stumbled upon this Japanese garden in Holland Park. It just invites you to sit and forget about your day…

This originally was a gift from the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce for the Japanese festival in 1991. Very traditional. Trees are cut respecting the natural shape of the branches. The cascade is in 3 steps and represent miniature mountains and gorges while the pond symbolises the quietness of the ocean.

It’s easy to be hypnotised byt the clouds refecting in the water – soothing. Only the koi, the Japenese carps will wake you up with a splash of colour…
