Japanese Garden in Monaco, a nice place for relaxing

from visitmonaco.com
This enchanting garden, designed by the landscape-architect Yasuo Beppu, covers 23,000 square feet right next to the Mediterranean Sea and has been blessed by a Shinto High Priest. The site is an authentic work of art that unites stone, water and vegetation in the most marvelous harmony.

The pine and olive trees are pruned in the pure tradition of the Land of the Rising Sun. Waterfalls and ponds, decorated with symbolically-shaped islands, add to the serenity of the surroundings and are admired by visitors as they walk through the garden. The natural stones were carefully chosen according to their shape, color and size.

The bamboo fences, Tea House, stone lanterns, tiles and wooden gates were all made in Japan. This exceptional garden situated at the foot of the sea-front high-rise buildings has a very special atmosphere, which is accentuated by the use of water sprays on the azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias.
