This garden was built in 1978 by architect Tadashi Asahi and funded by the Chilean Japanese Chamber of Commerce. It was re-dedicated in 1997 in the presence of His Imperial Highness Prince Hitachi.
The garden was later closed for 2 years. It reopened in January 2019 and welcomes all visitors free of charge.
This garden takes you back to the year 1300 in ancient Japan and reinterprets the various elements of nature which are represented symbolically.
Among the plants on view you will find: cherry blossoms, bamboo, Japanese maples, creeping cotoneaster, azaleas and lotus flowers.
If you wish to visit, the garden is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. A path from the Oasis Cable Car Station leads directly to this magical place, located in the heart of the Metropolitan Park, the fourth largest urban park in the world.
You can also reach the garden without having to walk by boarding one of our eco-friendly buses.
