JGarden Description:Since the normalization of the relations between China and Japan, many Chinese cities have established sister-city relationships with Japanese cities. The garden here was established on the 10th anniversary of the Harbin-Niigata relationship. The garden is located in the Sun Island Park which is located on the northern bank of the Songhua River. Covering an area of 3.7 hectares, the garden was built with a total investment of 4.2 million yuan. Japan invested 3.3 million yen and took the responsibility of the fundamental design. China was responsible for the construction work. It took 14 months to complete the garden. Opened in September 1989, the garden receives 150,000 domestic and foreign guests every year. The Sino-Japanese Friendship Memorial Hall is of traditional Japanese architectural style. The garden is a stroll-style design centered around a pond.
