Nice place for a walk

Nice place for a walk and find some rest, for me its to small, they should double the surface. Proud to have it in our town.

It's not too bad if you want a taste of Japan in Limburg. Not enough to get into the Japanese spirit of things per se. Good enough for kids I suppose.

In Springtime, it gives you the impression to be in Japan! The ideal place to relax and to take part at the tea ceremony!

The Japanese gardens in Hasselt are surly worth a visit. You can walk through many small paths and the property is well maintained as you would expect. Make sure to pass by the Japanese house and pond where you can see the koi from up close. On several occasions different martial arts schools come there to practice which adds a... More

The place is not so easy to find but type Koning Boudewijnlaan, 3500 Hasselt in your GPS and you'll be very close (just look for the trees). The entrance is 5€.The place is not so big but is very nice. Take your time to visit it. It's like if you were in Japan for a few minutes. It's recommended to... More

The garden is very unique, a beautiful place to relax and to stroll around, especially during spring. There are also interesting Japanese buildings and you can take your own picknick with you if you like too.

I really enjoyed the garden. It's very nice to take a stroll or have a picknick in the garden. It's close to the center of Hasselt.
