“A garden” that incorporates the aesthetic beauty and zen philosophies of China and Japan
The garden was designed around a central pond with classical sceneries represented by the miniature hills, stones and trees. At the time of its construction, the designers incorporated suggestions from Zhu Shunsui, a minister and scholar of the Ming Dynasty in China, and adopted Chinese elements such as the Full-Moon Bridge and the West Lake Dikes. The name of the park was also suggested by Zhu Shunsui. The garden was thus noted for its blend of classical Chinese and Japanese garden design elements.
