The Singapore Japanese Garden is based on Japanese gardens from the Muromachi period (1392 – 1568) to the Momoyama period (1568 – 1615). The garden includes a karesansui dry garden which exudes a sense of peace and tranquility with its minimalist and abstract design. The garden is made up of arched bridges, stone lantern and ponds faithfully recreating traditional Japanese gardening style. The Singapore Japanese Garden is within the Chinese Garden complex, also known as Jurong Gardens, was made in 1975 and designed by Prof. Yuen-chen Yu, an architect from Taiwan,. The garden’s concept is based on the integration of architectural features within the natural environment. The garden is modeled along the northern Chinese imperial styles of landscaping. In Chinese gardens, bridges play a critical role and the most important structures may denote a specific character.
