Arnoldshof is a private garden of 4,500 sq meters, with different elements: most parts are in a modern West European style but there is also a Japanese garden with a naturalistic appearance, based on the Heian-period, (9th-12th centuries). The sub-gardens are organized into separate 'rooms' with a shared open space in the middle. The Japanese garden is organized around a pond with a path of stepping stones.

The pond water
Reflects the fragrance
Of perfect Andromeda flowers.
Let me put them in my sleeve.
