The Japanese Gardens with traditional arching bridges.  The Japanese Gardens are reached from the Chinese Gardens via a 65 m long bridge. Also called "The Garden of Tranquility", the garden expresses a stark simplicity with small shrubs, stone lanterns and a miniature waterfall all conspiring to induce a feeling of calm serenity.
