Photographer's Note

This is one of the biggest Japanese Gardens in the world. It is located within Tres de Febrero Park. The Gardens were created in 1967 by the Japanese community residing in this country as a token of gratitude. Ten years later, the landscape artist Yasuo Inomata redesigned the Garden inspired on the Zen gardens that are generally located at the main entrance of temples. The garden surface occupies nearly two hectares (5 acres). There is a man-made lake that takes up 70 per cent of the whole garden, as well as several bridges and isles. The main isle is The Gods Island, where you can reach through a curved bridge or the Good Venture Bridge. The flora comprises 150 species, most of them brought from Japan. The main attractions of the place are the Monument to the Japanese Immigrant - as a homage to the founding community - and the Peace Bell used every year to celebrate the world peace day.
