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.

What a beautiful space to relax in. Neatly laid out, Japanese style garden with many pines and blossoms. Has a tranquil pond in the centre surrounded by large stones. There is a zen garden in the south eastern corner that is beautifully laid out with a sheltered observation area where people can sit and watch people raking the stones. A little oasis of calm next to the city. Would be great to see more like it in the parklands.
Got married here just over 10 years ago... the place is still simply serene. Lovely tranquil location so close to the complete contrast. Prefect for taking a quick moment to reflect and refresh.... please always remember to be respectful to the beauty of the location though and take care when exploring the area to its fullest. :)
