Kyoto Garden

London The Unfinished City
Reflections on Tranquillity.

Friday October 27, 2017.

The Kyoto Garden, Holland Park, is one of those places that I had heard a lot about, but, considering my love for all things Japanese, had never visited. This past week I rectified that oversight. 

With the leaves, on the surrounding trees, creating a coloured patchwork of a myriad colours, coupled with the crystal clear sky, there were so many great photo opportunities that I could have spent the entire day there.

It is definitely a place that I will be visiting again.

Brief History

The Kyoto Garden is contained within the 22.5 hectare Holland Park, and was opened in 1991. It was a gift from the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce to commemorate the friendship between our two countries. 

Consisting of a tiered waterfall, that enters a pond full of Koi Carp, Japanese maples, stone lanterns, small water features, numerous Bonsai trees and much more, it really is a piece of Japan in the heart of the Unfinished City.
