The Japanese garden is based on the philosophy of the cycle of life and the richness of the expression of nature. Flow, reflection, immersion in nature are those actions that characterize a real Japanese garden. The Kadriorg Park Japanese Garden was opened on July 31, 2011. Garden designer Masao Sone, originally from Kyoto, studied garden architecture in Tokyo and from his gardener father. The area of the Northeast Pond of the Kadriorg Park with its sunken glint slope, boulder field, large trees, a pond, and a waterfall was an excellent source of inspiration. A garden, like any living organism, develops and changes over time, and again and again, there is a reason to return here!
