Japanese Garden, Singapore

Japanese Garden is built on an artificial island and located next to the Chinese Garden just cross over the bridge. Both are accessible by train, alight at Chinese Garden station, west of Singapore.

Unlike Chinese Garden, Japanese Garden design is more minimalist and abstract, with emphasis on simplicity and offer the sense of nature. It is based on the gardening techniques which prevailed from the Muromachi period (1392 – 1568) to the Momoyama period (1568 – 1615) in Japan.

Several arched bridges over lily-filled ponds and streams as well as traditional summer houses all add to the serene and tranquil surroundings of the garden.

The most attracting scene for photographers are those red colored arched bridges and some huge rocks there, which enhance the landscape of the garden.

Strongly recommend for Landscape and Nature Photography and try to visit there if you happen to be in Singapore.
