Adelaide Himeji Garden
The Himeji Gardens on South Terrace is a beautiful Japanese styled garden that is a delight to find right on the southern edge of the CBD. Nestled in the Parklands that surround Adelaide, Himeji is a tranquil place to gather your thoughts.
The moment I walked through the wooden gate, I was transposed into an entirely different place- Japan.
The garden has two classic styles of Japan, Kare Senzui, the dry garden, and Senzui, the lake and the mountain garden, which are cleverly designed. Kare Senzui’s rocks and sand evoke the presence of water and, while Senzui’s pond is simply magical.
This well-maintained Japanese garden is a hidden gem in the city of Adelaide. Entrance is free but keep in mind that they close at 5.30pm. Click here to find out more about the Himeji Garden.
