Every garden shows typical plants and design of it’s country of origin. To be honest I found these gardens full of stereotypes. You will never find a Japanese garden outside of Japan who lacks zen circles drawn into the gravel.

Brooks, hills and slopes, walls of erratic blocks, waterfalls, green pastures and small forests have been built with the knowledge and financial help of cultural associations and embassies. It’s a hand made landscape, a new born world forced to be finished for the International Garden Show 2017. But scedule failed in parts. The Jewish Garden has been added just recently.
