JGarden Description:This garden constructed in 1993 by the local authorities is said to be the largest Japanese garden in Europe. At 25,000 sq meters, that may very well be true. The garden was built in collaboration with the city of Itami.

The garden consists of three parts. The first is a transition zone from the Parc Kapermolen to the Japanese garden. The second is a tea garden focusing on a teahouse. The third is a large grove of 250 cherry trees.

Several museums are located nearby including a Fashion Museum (Le Musee de la Mode), Museum of Stellingwerff-Waerdenhof and a distillery museum called the National Museum of Genievre. There are shuttle busses running toward Grand Place every minutes or on the boulevard every 5 minutes (use Line 3 for the garden) and free buses from Hasselt except on Sundays and public holidays. 




Although the scene
At Osawa-ike is old,
The same bright autumn moon
Casts down its lucide light.
