Adelaide Himeji Gardens

Hidden Gem

Adelaide Himeji Garden

The Garden blends two classic styles: ‘senzui’ (lake and mountain garden) where water and the imagination create images of vastness and grandeur, with ‘kare senzui’ (dry garden) where rocks and sand evoke the presence of water and the sea itself. This symbolism alone is enough to make it the perfect place for proposing, yet is still complemented by the natural stunning ambiance.
