All of the furnishing items in the garden are imported from Ehime Prefecture, Japan


The two-hectare park is also known as Rin Rin Park, in which Rin means forest in Japanese. Plants, rocks and water there are harmoniously arranged according to bold cultural characteristics of the traditional garden in Japan.


The garden will be an ideal destination for Bonsai lovers. Visitors can contemplate an artistic arrangement of 500-year-old cypress trees, waterfalls, stone sculptures and decorations, which are natural yet delicate. Remarkably, all of the materials including more than 4,000 tons of stone and many pines trees were imported from Ehime Prefecture in Japan.

Colorful Koi fish in the pond 


Especially there is a fish pond with more than 200 colorful Koi fish in the center of the garden. This is a precious type of fish in Japan with many variants including Kohaku, Taisho Sanke, Showa Sanke, Butterfly koi, and Doitsu-goi.


An adult fish may be 0.5-1.5 meters long with a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Tourists can feed Koi fish as many times as wished because the fish never get full.


Rin Rin Park is highly recommended for those fond of Japanese culture and wanting to escape from busy and noisy city life for a day.
