Japanese Garden...Peaceful getaway

Sinhagad Road,

A hidden treasure in the city of Pune, is the Japanese Garden.

2) Okayama Friendship Garden. 

It is one of the most beautiful spots around the Pune city. During rainy season, the sight is splendid! 

#Location : Sinhagad Road, Pune

#Novelty Factor : The garden is beautifully constructed with little waterfalls, bridges, garden and clean paths to walk around the garden. The basic theme on which the garden has been constructed is mind-boggling.

  • Well manicured lawns
  • Shallow pools filled with small, round pebbles.
  • Bamboo bridges, and bamboo seats
  • Walking over the grass is not allowed, but there is a path constructed in the garden, hence, allowing you to stroll all around easily and enjoy the changing landscape.

It takes you away from the hustle-bustle, noise and the pollution of the city and is a beautiful place to go on a holiday, especially during the spring and rainy season.
