The Japanese Garden is a picturesque park located in the Jurong Lake area.
Connected to the equally scenic Chinese Garden via the Bridge of Double Beauty, these parks are collectively known as the Jurong Gardens.

Other exciting features include the ten sundials that have been installed throughout Singapore. It’s not uncommon to come across the monitor lizards who tend to hang around the koi ponds, but there’s no need to worry because they are harmless.
The garden is frequented by locals, travellers, photographers, and even cosplayers, who take photos around the unique architecture for photo-shoots.
Shaded benches can be found throughout the garden. Don’t miss the traditional Japanese house where you’ll find stunning lanterns around a pond and a small waterfall.
When visiting the garden, it’s advisable to come in comfortable walking shoes. There are a few stalls that sell refreshments if you get thirsty.
On certain occasions such as the Mid-Autumn Festival, special cultural performances are held in the gardens, and hundreds of stunning paper lanterns light up the park at night. Otherwise, on a regular day, the gardens are a beautiful place to go for a stroll, take some photos, or relax.
The Japanese Garden is open from 6am to 10pm daily. Admission is free.
