Himeji Garden - South Parklands

Adelaide, South Australia.

In 1982 Adelaide and the ancient Japanese City of Himeji became Sister Cities. Himeji is located 650 km west of Tokyo and 8,050 km from Adelaide. With a population of more than 450,000 it is a major port and centre of industry and the headquarters of the Nissan steel company.

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 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.
