Artist's Description

A place for a peaceful rest, reading and quiet reflection.

The Adelaide-Himeji Garden contains features which are of profound religious significance to the Japanese people. It contains features designed to recall the beauty of nature.

The gardens in the south parklands was a gift from Adelaide’s sister city, Himeji, in 1982. The entrance is from South Terrace, between Pulteney and Hutt Streets.

The enclosure is one of only a few classical Japanese gardens in Adelaide. It was originally designed by Adelaide council staff; however, following two visits by Japanese landscape designer, Yoshitaka Kumada in the late 1980s, its layout was improved to adhere to traditional principles.

The Garden blends two classic styles. The first is the ‘senzui’ (lake and mountain garden), where water and the imagination create images of vastness and grandeur. The second is the ‘kare senzui’ (dry garden), where rocks and sand evoke the presence of water, even the sea itself.
