Kyoto Garden in Holland Park

Today we were lucky enough to have some nice weather, so my friend and I decided it was about time we finally went to visit Kyoto Garden in Holland Park (a bit of inspiration from Fran’s lovely posts actually).

Kyoto Garden is only a very small section of Holland Park, but a very beautiful one. It really does feel like nihon in London! The pond even has koi (Japanese carps).  The garden also features a waterfall, momiji (maple tree) and a sakura tree. I just couldn’t get enough of the lovely scenery, so snapped a few pictures 🙂 But I really do recommend that you go see it for yourself.

And while you’re in Holland Park, if you’re lucky enough you may just run into this wonderful creature 😉
