Spring in Japanese Garden @ Clingendael ParkThe Japanese Garden in Clingendael Park (Japanse Tuin Clingendael) is finally reopened to the public this Spring.
To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the garden, a huge red Torii or Japanese arch is set-up right at the main entrance of the Clingendael Park to give a warmth welcome to all visitors.
This small but utterly beautiful Japanese garden is very well preserved and maintained. The garden exudes a strong Japanese feel, and instantly flashes me back to the Ginkaku-ji garden in Kyoto the moment I stepped into the garden.
The sculptures, little bridges, water cask, plants and etcs in the garden were painstakingly shipped from Japan back in 20th century.

The magnificent views in the garden - cherry blossom and magnolia flowers in full bloom.
Admission to this beautiful Japanese garden is free. However, the garden is only opened for a short period each year, 6 weeks in Spring and 2 weeks in Autumn. Don't miss it!
