Find serenity in Adelaide at the Himeji Garden. Japanese sister city, Himeji, presented the gardens as a gift in 1982, and landscape architect Yoshitaka Kumada visited a few years later to upgrade the layout and bring the design into line with the principles of a traditional Japanese. Take a self-guided tour of the sansui mountain and lake garden and of the karensansui dry rock garden. Try to arrive early if you want the gardens to yourself, and don't forget your camera.

Himeji Garden Reviews
Beautiful quiet spot In the city to sit and enjoy. Water feature has carp and turtles. Was just lovely to watch them for hours and listen to the birds. Well worth a stop if you are in the area. more »
本格的と言うのは大げさかもしれませんが、かなり立派な日本庭園でした。Haigh's Chocolatesショップで買い物した後、緑地帯を北に10分ほど歩いた場所にありました。 more »It might be exaggerated to say earnest, but it was a pretty splendid Japan garden. After shopping at Haigh's Chocolates shop, we were in the area where we walked about ten minutes north of the green belt.
I would highly recommend this place for couples or for a solo walk to reflect in a peaceful environment. There are several water features located in this garden, and a large pond that stretches throughout the garden. Great photo opportunities for photographers, and a great location to host a wedding or function. Plant life is identified by signs in front of trees and plants. This place is closed during night time, and there are no toilet facilities as of writing this review. Garden is a fully open space, so make sure to take some protection from the weather (umbrella/raincoat) if it is raining, or forecast to rain.
Himeji Garden is small in area yet beautiful and doesn’t stop one from praising its beauty. Well maintained, pond is attractive, fee seating chairs, and trees and grass are mind blowing! Best for quick walk and refreshment.
